Boromir (F.A. 338-F.A. 432) was son of Boron and grandson of Bëor the Old and leader of the House of Bëor.

He was given by the Elves (possibly Finrod) the region of Ladros in Dorthonion, since his House had long been loyal in his service.

He was the father of Andreth, Beril and Bregor, who succeeded him.

Etymology

The first bearer of the name Boromir in the early versions of the legendarium was the character later named Borlach.[1][2]
