Galador was the first Prince of Dol Amroth.

History

According to legend, Galador was the son of Imrazôr the Númenórean and the Elf-maid Mithrellas.[1] Following the drowning of Amroth and subsequent renaming of Edhellond, Galador became the first Prince of Dol Amroth, his ancestors having held the title "Prince" since the time of Elendil and ruling Belfalas at least as long.[2]
