He ascended the throne after the death of his father Eärendil in TA 324. No notable events were recorded for his reign, except that he was the last king to dwell in Osgiliath during the summer, as his son rebuilt and expanded Minas Anor.
Anardil died in TA 411 aged 324 after a rule of eighty-seven years and was succeeded by his son Ostoher.
A much earlier Anardil was the birth-name of Tar-Aldarion.
The name Anardil means "Sun friend" in Quenya from Anar meaning "the Sun" and the ending -dil meaning "devotion" (Devoted to the Sun).
