Tar-Amandil was the third King of Númenor.

BiographyEdit

Tar-Amandil was actually Númenor's second ruler. Tar-Amandil's father, Vardamir Nólimon, declined to take the throne upon the death of his father, Elros Tar-Minyatur. He abdicated due to advanced age in favor of his son Tar-Amandil but was still by right of succession the ruler and is still counted in the list of kings making him the second king. Then, Tar-Amandil was the third King of Númenor. He had three children: Elendil, his eldest son who would succeed his father, Eärendur, and a daughter named Mairen.[2]

Tar-Amandil surrendered the Sceptre of Númenor in SA 590 and was succeeded by his own son, Tar-Elendil. He died in year 603 of the Second Age at the age of 411 years.[1]

EtymologyEdit

Amandil is a Quenya word that meant "Friend of Aman" or perhaps "Devoted to Aman" from Aman and ndil ("friend").[3]
