The Glorious

The title of Atanatar II, who ruled Gondor during the early second millennium of the Third Age, in a time when its wealth and power were legendary. This title means 'Glorious', but in fact Atanatar did little to build on the advances of his forebears, and history came to see his reign as the beginning of Gondor's decline.
