Glóredhel was the daughter of Hador and Gildis, and sister of Galdor and Gundor. She was older than both of them. Glóredhel married Haldir, chief of the House of Haleth. She was the mother of Handir, who was in turn the father of Brandir the Lame.

Etymology

Glóredhel means "Elf of the Golden Light" in Sindarin (from glor- = "holy golden light" and edhel = "Elf"). She was so named because of her radiant blonde hair and height, which was comparable to an Elf.
