Alagdor is one of the exalted families of Ithilien. According to family legend, they descend from one of the shipmates of Isildur who came from Númenor on II 3319. The direct partilinear line, which had been unbroken since the fourth century of the Third Age, died out in the Great Plague. A new heir, a distant nephew from Hyarpendë, has assumed the title. Angon is young and ruthless, and with control of one of Ithilien's most powerful families under his belt, he seems destined for a bright future. He has allied himself with the Côr Carammaitë to further his personal power. There are gossip about involvement in other secret societies as well.

Estates of House are situated in Southern Ithilien. They include the County of Alagdor between Hyarpendë and Athrad Poros. In addition, members of the House hold several brick manufactures, one hundred olive oil presses, and operate a large fleet of merchantmen. Angon Alagdor is personally known for his proud mock-númenorean palace in Minas Ithil. Combined wealth of the Alagdori is estimated to be c. 12 million miriani or 600 000 crowns.

Hîr Brannon, 26th Lord of Alagdor, was one of the first great lords to rebel against King Valacar in the 1420s and was counted among the Captains who ousted King Eldacar and elected his cousin Castamir in his stead. When Eldacar and his allies defeated Castamir during the Kin-strife, the House Alagdor was nearly decimated. If the youngest son of Brannon, a well known writer and classical scholar called Lango Alagdor, had not escaped to Calenardhon and joined Eldacar's forces, the whole House would have been exiled and their estates annulled.

House members in the Council of Gondor: Angon (Lord Alagdor), Bartholon, Guidon, Criston the Older, Orbeleg councilor of Ithilien, Oropher, Orlando and Estel.
