Ancestor of the later Ship-kings of Gondor

One of the sons of King Siriondil of Gondor. His elder brother was Tarannon, who took the title Falastur and ruled as King of Gondor after his father. Tarannon's Queen Berúthiel was sent into exile. Tarannon therefore died childless, and so it was Tarciryan's son who succeeded Tarannon to the throne. This was Eärnil I, the second of the Ship-kings after Tarannon himself.
