Tolkien Gateway > Council > Galdor of the ????


If you are not farmiliar with the name, Galdor of the Havens was present at the Council of Elrond representing Círdan the Shipwright and the elves of Mithlond. Though it is doubted by some, I believe Galdor of the Havens to also be Galdor of the Trees. Galdor of the trees was leader of the House of the Trees in Gondolin and was known to be the second bravest Elf in Gondolin save King Turgon, the original weilder of Glamdring. He was most dangerous wielding a club or a spear (and, for practical purposes during the Fall of Gondolin, a bow). Galdor escaped the Fall of Gondolin with Tour and Indril as one of the few surviving lords of the houses. He later left Beriland for Valinor. Yet, what if he was sent back? Like Glorfindel of Rivendell, Galdor of the Havens may have been one of the few to actually make the journy from Aman to Middle Earth. He may have had a mission from the Valar to help in those troubled times. He could have been sent to help ferry the Elves from the dangers of Middle Earth, or to be present during the Council of Elrond. The fact that he was even sent to represent Mithlond during the council shows that he may be more powerful then we credit to him. He may have made the trip across the sea many times, seeing that he is one of the relatively few Mithlond Elves. During these trips, he may have transported elves and tidings to Valinor and information and gifts back. That is my opinion on the matter. Any others?--Galdor of the Havens 21:23, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
