Númellótë

'Flower of the West'

Years of the Trees First Age Second Age Third Age Fourth Age and Beyond

The Elvish translation of the Adûnaic name Inziladûn, which was the name of King Tar-Palantir of Númenor before he acceded to the throne. The name followed the pattern of Inzilbéth his mother, and doubtless reflects her secret allegiance to the party of the Faithful: both Númellótë and Inziladûn mean 'Flower of the West'.
