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.



Gimilzagar is the only name we have for Inzilbêth's father. Some sources indicate that this was Gimilzagar the second 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.
