Ladros was the name of the north-eastern corner of Dorthonion, in northern Beleriand during the First Age.

As the rest of Dorthonion, Ladros was dotted with great pine forests and steep slopes. It lay at the very border of Morgoth's realm, just south of the Anfauglith.


Before the coming of Men into the west, the Ñoldor lords Angrod and Aegnor, sons of Finarfin, ruled Dorthonion. As the land of Dor-lómin was given to the House of Hador, so was Ladros given to the House of Bëor. Boromir son of Boron, grandson of Bëor became the first Lord of Ladros.[1] He was succeeded by his son Bregor, and he by his son Bregolas. Bregolas fell during the Dagor Bragollach, and Barahir son of Bregor would have been Lord of Ladros. He never regained his lands, though, as Morgoth's forces swept through them after the battle.

The last remnant of Bëor's folk dwelt in the Highlands of Dorthonion after Morgoth conquered them, led by Barahir. Eventually they were worsted and only one, Beren son of Barahir (who would in turn have been Lord of Ladros), escaped to continue the battle against Morgoth.[citation needed]
