Baldor was the first son and heir of Brego (the second King of Rohan), and the grandson of Eorl the Young.

At the great feast celebrating the completion of the golden hall of Meduseld, Baldor vowed to tread the Paths of the Dead. He never returned and his father died of grief the very next year.

The kingship passed then to Baldor's brother, Aldor.
