Galdor was the son of Hador and succeeded his father as Lord of Dor-lómin. He married Hareth and had two sons, Húrin and Huor. Galdor had a younger brother named Gundor and an older sister named Glóredhel.

Galdor was noted for his exceptional height, even among the Edain, and was also called Galdor the Tall. He led the People of Hador when they were at the peak of their power, before the Nirnaeth Arnoediad ("Battle of Unnumbered Tears").
