Tar-Amandil was the third King of Númenor.
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.
