Rulers of Númenor
Twenty-fifth and last King of Númenor. He assailed Mordor and brought Sauron back to Númenor as a hostage, but Sauron seduced him, and persuaded him to sail on Valinor itself. As punishment for this act, the island of Númenor sank beneath the waves of the Great Sea.
The Elvish equivalent of this name, Calion, suggests that 'golden' is meant in the sense of 'shining' or 'brilliant'.
