Agaldor was a man living among the exiled people in Middle-earth. He was the chief of a people on the edge of the Western Sea and a seer who often walked along the beaches and coastlines. He foresaw among other things, the arrival of the Númenóreans and the redemption of mankind ahead. Agaldor was later killed by the Númenóreans who took control of the lands.[2]
