At a great feast of the Edain, Glóredhel married Haldir and Galdor married Hareth, both children of Halmir, chief of the House of Haleth. Glóredhel was the mother of Handir, who was in turn the father of Brandir the Lame.
Glóredhel means "Elf of the Golden Light" in Sindarin, from glaur- ("holy golden light") + edhel ("Elf"). She was so named because of her radiant blonde hair and height, which was comparable to an Elf.
