His oldest child was Silmariën, a daughter, and his second child was Isilmë, yet another daughter. Silmariën would have become Queen according to the principle of full cognatic primogeniture. However, the laws dictating succession at the time followed the principle of agnatic primogeniture, preventing women from ruling. Consequently, his third child and oldest son Tar-Meneldur succeeded him.
He is the direct ancestor of all subsequent Kings of Númenor through his son. Through his daughter, Tar-Elendil is direct ancestor to:
- The Lords of Andúnië.
From the time of the reign of Tar-Elendil, Númenóreans began to contact with the Middle-earth more actively. It was in SA 600 that Vëantur, the Captain of the King's Ships, sailed from Númenor to the Middle-earth for the first time. He surrendered the Sceptre in SA 740 and died in year 751 of the Second Age, at the age of 401 years.
