Atanamir

The thirteenth King of Númenor

The son and Heir of Tar-Ciryatan of Númenor, more properly known by his royal title Tar-Atanamir. He was one of Númenor's most famous and powerful Kings, but also one of its proudest and most greedy. He exacted tribute from the Men of Middle-earth, and opposed the Ban of the Valar (though he did not dare to actually defy the Ban). He is known as Tar-Atanamir the Great, and also the Unwilling, because he refused to give up his life freely, and lived on into old age and senility.
