Artamir was the eldest son of King Ondoher of Gondor. He, his father, and his younger brother were killed in battle with the Wainriders.[1]


The name Artamir comes from Quenya and means "noble jewel". It is made from the words arta, meaning "exalted" or "noble", and mírë, meaning "treasure" or "jewel".[2]
