Baldor the Hapless (died T.A. 2570) was the prideful son of Brego and grandson of Eorl the Young.

With his father, he explored Rohan, and came to Harrowdale. They found the Paths of the Dead. Surprised by a riddle from an old man that forbade them passage, he became curious. At the inaugeration of Meduseld in T.A. 2569, he vowed to pass the Dark Door. He did so a year later, and was never seen again alive.

Early March T.A. 3019, Aragorn and they Grey Company found the golden-clad knight. His legs were broken, and his sword was notched.
