Halad I (978-1046 AS) was the third king of Keledon; ruling from 1012 AS until his death in 1046. Halad proved an able king, although not of the stature of his father or grandfather. His three and a half decade reign was marred by unrest among many of the early Noble Houses and steady Akarthan incursions through Cardas Pass.

Halad is remembered for his repair of the old Alindorean roads and provision for their maintenance under royal law. He is also remembered for an ill-fated expedition into Akaryth; his devotion to the gods of the woods and fields; and his love of wine, song and drink.
