Rulers of Númenor

The son and heir of Ar-Zimrathôn of Númenor. He followed the tradition of his grandfather Ar-Adûnakhôr, and took his King-name in the Adûnaic tongue (the Elvish equivalent is recorded as Tar-Falassion).

Ar-Sakalthôr ruled Númenor for sixty-nine years. He was succeeded by his son, who took the Sceptre as King Ar-Gimilzôr.
