A descendant of the royal line of Númenor

The son of Axantur, who lived during the early centuries of Númenor's history. Ardamir, whose name means 'Jewel of the World', was a great-grandson of Vardamir Nólimon the second King of Númenor. So, he could claim descent from the royal line, and from Elros Tar-Minyatur himself. We know that Ardamir also had descendants of his own, but history records no details of their names or deeds.
