Lords of Andúnië

Númendil was the grandson of Eärendur, the fifteenth Lord of Andúnië. He succeeded his father (whose name is unknown) to become the seventeenth Lord at the time when Tar-Palantir was King of Númenor. Both Lord and King desired a return to the old traditions of Númenor, and they were close friends and political allies. Tar-Palantir would at times travel to see Númendil in Andúnië, and as a Councillor of the Sceptre, Númendil would often journey to the King's seat at Armenelos.

Númendil's son Amandil inherited the Lordship of Andúnië, and through him, Númendil would become the ancestor of all the Kings of the Dúnedain in Middle-earth. According to some sources, he also had a second son, named Elentir.
