Hyarmendacil I

The conqueror of the Harad

Kings of Gondor

A man originally named Ciryaher, the heir to Gondor's throne who saw his father Ciryandil slain at the hands of the Men of Harad. To avenge his father's death, the new King took a great army and conquered the southern lands of the Harad, ruling thereafter under the name Hyarmendacil, 'South-victor'. He ruled in Gondor for no less than for one hundred and thirty-four years, and was succeeded by his son Atanatar.
