Hathol (born F.A. 365) was an Adan, belonging to the tribes of Men who crossed the Blue Mountains from the eastern lands. He was the grandson of Malach Aradan and son of Magor.[1] who had settled with some of his folk among the southern foothills of the Ered Wethrin.[2]

Little is known of his life, except that he probably dwelt with his folk south of the Ered Wethrin, and was not under the service of any Elf-lord of Beleriand. Hathol was the father of the great hero Hador Lórindol, who served Fingolfin and was granted the land of Dor-lómin to dwell in.[2]
