King of the Dúnedain

Elros and his descendants

A title given to the Kings of Númenor, of whom Elros was the first. He was surnamed Tar-Minyatur 'King, First Lord' in token of this. The title definitely applied to the Kings of Númenor, and presumably also to their descendants in Middle-earth. Though the title is never explicitly used for any King after the Downfall, Isildur is at one point given the similar title 'King of all the Dúnedain'.


For a list and genealogy of all the Kings of Elros' line, see the entry for King of Númenor. For the later Kings of the Dúnedain in Middle-earth, see the entries for King of Arnor, King of Arthedain and King of Gondor.
