The Eldarin name of Ar-Gimilzôr

The twenty-third ruler of Númenor, and the fourth to take a royal name in Adûnaic rather than the traditional Elvish. Indeed, Ar-Gimilzôr broke strongly with Númenor's historic association with the Elves, banning them from travelling to the island, and prohibiting the use of their languages. It is ironic, then, that the Elvish form of his name is recorded: Tar-Telemnar. Ar-Gimilzôr's bans and prohibitions were overturned after his death by his elder son and Heir Tar-Palantir.
