The [[House of Hador]] ([[Sindarin]]: '''''Bar Hador'''''<ref>{{MR|P5I}}; the first word appears in the [[lenition|lenited]] compound form ''e-mbar'' "''of'' the House"</ref>) was the name of the third House of the [[Edain]] to cross the [[Ered Luin]] into [[Beleriand]] during the [[First Age]]. They were originally known as the [[House of Hador|House of Marach]] but were renamed during the reign of their later ruler [[Hador]] in honour of him.

That folk was numerous and came in three hosts each around 2000 adult men. They crossed [[Eriador]] armed and equipped, with many [[horses]], some [[donkeys]] and flocks of [[sheep]] and [[goats]]. They reached the feet of the [[Ered Luin]] a year before all others but didn't attempt to find passes. Their mounted scouts attemted to find a way round them, and did so from the south.<ref name=DM/>

In {{FA|313}}, the people of Marach crossed the [[Ered Luin]] and entered [[Beleriand]]. They were the largest of the Houses and also the most warlike and they frightened the native [[Green-elves]] who inhabited the forested slopes of the mountains and so were bidden to progress to Estolad as the [[House of Bëor]] had done. Of all the Houses of the Edain the Hadorians remained longest in Estolad (perhaps due to the immense size of the House) but became close allies with the Ñoldorin [[House of Fingolfin]] who reigned in [[Hithlum]]. Under the rule of [[Magor]], grandson of Marach the House removed to the southern slopes of the [[Ered Wethrin]].
