Younger son of Telumehtar Umbardacil

Arciryas' father was King Telumehtar Umbardacil, the twenty-eighth ruler of Gondor. Telumehtar was succeeded by Arciryas' elder brother, who became King Narmacil II, but history would prove Arciryas' own line to be important in its own right. His great-grandson, Eärnil, became an important general in Gondor's armies. After a disastrous battle left the land without a King or an heir, it was Eärnil's descent from Arciryas (and hence the royal line) that led the Council to grant him the Kingship.
