(Hyarmendacil II)

Kings of Gondor

In the time of the Kin-strife, the civil war of Gondor, King Eldacar was deposed by Castamir and his eldest son Ornendil was slain. Eldacar later recovered his rightful Kingship, but because of Ornendil's early death he was succeeded by his younger son Aldamir. Aldamir's reign was marked by war with the southern lands, including the Haven of Umbar that had been seized by Castamir's supporters. Aldamir was slain in that war and succeeded by his son Vinyarion, who avenged his father's death by conquering the Haradrim, after which he ruled as Hyarmendacil II.


Notes

1

The fact that Aldamir had an elder sister can be inferred from a comment in The Heirs of Elendil in volume 12 of The History of Middle-earth, where Aldamir is described as the 'second son and third child' of Eldacar.
