Valandil was the third King of Arnor.

BiographyEdit

The youngest of Isildur's four sons, he was only a child at the time of the War of the Last Alliance, in which his grandfather, Elendil, was killed. Due to this, he remained in Rivendell when his father and brothers went into the south, and was thus the only one of Isildur's sons to survive the Disaster of the Gladden Fields. He received the Shards of Narsil as an heirloom of the Heirs of Isildur when he came of age.[1] Valandil became king in TA 10[2] and ruled Arnor for two-hundred and thirty-nine years, which was longer than any King in the North or South, and he lived for two-hundred and sixty years dying in TA 249.

He was succeeded by his son Eldacar.[3]

EtymologyEdit

Valandil was a Quenya word that meant 'Valar-lover'[4] or 'Friend of the Valar'.
