The royal name taken by Herucalmo

Rulers of Númenor

The Númenórean king-name taken by Herucalmo, the consort of the third Ruling Queen Tar-Vanimeldë. During his wife's reign, Herucalmo was the real power in the land of Númenor. After the Queen's death, he took the Kingship illegally in the name Tar-Anducal, and ruled the island kingdom for twenty years until his own death. He was succeeded by his son, the legal heir to Tar-Vanimeldë who took the throne as Tar-Alcarin.
