Ancalimon

A name for the fourteenth Ruler of Númenor

The short form of the name of the King of Númenor known more fully as Tar-Ancalimon. The son of Tar-Atanamir, Tar-Ancalimon ruled Númenor between the years of II 2251 and II 2386. His rule was a vitally important period in the history of Númenor: it saw the first divisions among its people that would lead eventually to the enmity between the King's Men and the Faithful, and ultimately to the destruction of Númenor itself.


Notes

1

There is some doubt about Ancalimon's date of accession, and it may in fact be II 2221 rather than II 2251. See note 1 to the entry for Tar-Ancalimon for more details.
