- For other uses of the name, see Caledor (disambiguation).
Caledor's original name was Imrik (not to confuse with his descendant Imrik who lived during the reign of Finubar). He was the second-born son of Menieth who was the son of Caledor Dragontamer. Imrik's older brother, Caledrian, was ruling prince of Caledor until his death at the massacre at the Shrine of Asuryan.[3a] His younger brother was Dorien.
His father told him more than once that "though Caledrian was heir, Imrik was the strongest of the three brothers.[3c]
During Caledor's reign, his generals included his younger brother Dorien and his cousin Thyrinor.
Upon his death, Caledor was succeeded by his son, Tythanir, who took the name Caledor II.
