Tarannon Falastur was born in the year TA 654 and succeeded his father Siriondil in TA 830. The expansion of Gondor started under his reign as he started the construction of Gondor's navies. He was therefore the first of the 'Ship-kings'.
His reign was troubled by the intrigues of his Queen, Berúthiel who spied on everyone within the kingdom. When she went too far he sent her into exile. As a consequence he died childless (in TA 913) and was succeeded by his nephew Eärnil I.
