The first Lord of Dol Amroth was Galador, son of Imrazôr the Númenórean. Imrazôr was himself the son of Adrahil I, Prince of Dor-En-Ernil. At some point Imrazôr moved to the area where once was the elven haven of Edhellond. According to tradition, there he married Mithrellas, a Silvan Elf of Lórien who had accompanied Nimrodel, the beloved of Lothlórien's king Amroth, on her journey towards Edhellond, but had become lost along with her mistress sometime in the middle of the Third Age. Galador and his descendants therefore had claim to Elven blood. (This is one of the few unions of Men and Elves, which included Beren and Lúthien, Tuor and Idril, and the later wedding of Aragorn and Arwen.) Númenor is a fictional location from J. R. R.

After Imrazôr's death, Galador went on to found the city and later the princedom of Dol Amroth. He is counted as its first Lord. The specific date of its foundation is nowhere recounted.
