The son of Tar-Vanimeldë

Rulers of Númenor

The son and heir of Tar-Vanimeldë, the third Ruling Queen of Númenor. He should have succeeded his mother, but instead his father Herucalmo withheld the Sceptre from his son, and ruled as Tar-Anducal for twenty years before his own death. Thereupon Tar-Alcarin took up his rightful Kingship, and ruled for a further eighty years. He was succeeded by his own son, Tar-Calmacil.
