Brodda was an Easterling from the House of Ulfang.

History[edit]

During the First Age, after Morgoth captured the land of Hithlum, Brodda became its lord. He took to wife (against her will) Aerin of the House of Hador, a kinswoman of Húrin, and took Húrin's lands and possessions.[2] When in F.A. 495[3] Túrin Turambar, son of Húrin, returned to Dor-lómin, he learned from Aerin that his mother, Morwen, had left Hithlum. In his rage he killed Brodda, thereby also sealing Aerin's fate, who burnt herself alive in her hall, and the remainder of the House of Hador now was persecuted even more cruelly.[4]
