Aldamir was the twenty-third King of Gondor (Castamir being counted the twenty-second).

BiographyEdit

Aldamir was the second son of King Eldacar of Gondor and succeeded him in TA 1490 because his elder brother Ornendil was executed by Castamir. Aldamir's fifty year reign was marked with constant warfare with the Corsairs of Umbar (among them were the sons of Castamir) and the Haradrim. He was slain in battle with the Men of Harad and Corsairs of Umbar in TA 1540 and was succeeded by his son Vinyarion.[2][3]

EtymologyEdit

Aldamir was a Quenya word that meant 'Tree-jewel'.[4]
