Inzilbêth

The mother of Tar-Palantir

Though she was taken to wife by Ar-Gimilzôr, Inzilbêth was secretly a member of the Faithful party, whom he strongly opposed. Her son, Tar-Palantir, followed her teachings when he became King of Númenor.


Notes

1

Gimilzagar is the only name we have for Inzilbêth's father. Some sources indicate that this was Gimilzagar the second of son of Tar-Calmacil, but that Gimilzagar lived far too early for this to be the case. Alternatively, it might be taken that the father of Inzilbêth was a namesake of his predecessor, and so the name Gimilzagar is shown in the chart above.
