The Lords of Ladros ruled Ladros, a realm of the Edain in the highlands of Dorthonion.[1]

[edit] History

Boromir, the older son of Boron, became the fourth Chieftain of the House of Bëor in F.A. 408.[2] Since his House had long been loyal in service to the House of Finarfin, in F.A. 410,[3] he was given the region of Ladros in Dorthonion by the Noldorin Elf-lords Angrod and Aegnor, the younger sons of the Elven-king Finarfin.[1]

Bregolas served with the Elf-lords Angrod and Aegnor in the northern land of Dorthonion, and he was by their side when the forces of Angband launched the sudden and devastating attack that would become known as the Dagor Bragollach in F.A. 455.[4] Bregolas died quickly in that assault, but his sons survived to join Barahir.[4] With Dorthonion under Morgoth's control, they became outlaws in the land of their father.[4]
