The Men of Dor-lómin[1] also Men of the North were Men of the House of Hador, to whom the land of Dor-lómin was granted as a hereditary fief by the Kings of the Noldor.[2] They were ruled by the Lord of Dor-lómin.

In the Nirnaeth Arnoediad the Men of Dor-lómin formed a host, led by the brothers Húrin and Huor, that assembled on the right of the Noldor of Hithlum. When the forces of King Turgon retreated, the Men of Dor-lómin served as their rearguard. When they were pushed back into the Fen of Serech they made a last stand.[1] Afterwards, their lands were given to the Easterlings, and enslaved by them.[3]
