Calimehtar

Younger brother to King Rómendacil II

A prince of the Royal House of Gondor, the younger son of King Calmacil, and brother to the famous Rómendacil II. His direct impact on history was negligible, and indeed he is not mentioned in the annals of his own time at all. He had a lasting legacy, though, in the form of his grandson Castamir, who used the fact of his descent from Calimehtar as a pretext for usurping the throne of Gondor during the bloody times known as the Kin-strife.
