Far-wanderer

Aldarion’s vessel Palarran

Aldarion was the Heir to King Tar-Meneldur of Númenor. He was a great captain and adventurer, to the dismay of his father the King, who wished his son to spend his youth in the island he would one day rule. Aldarion, though, felt the call of the sea, and he built himself a vast ship, larger than any that had been seen at that time. He called it Palarran, an Elvish name meaning 'Far-wanderer', and in it he journeyed the Great Sea to Middle-earth.
