Ancalimë’s husband of choice

The daughter of an unhappy marriage, raised in isolation, Ancalimë had no wish to wed, though her duty as Heir to the Sceptre of Númenor demanded it. Her preferred husband, she said, would be Úner, which is the Elvish for 'Noman'. In the end, she relented, and wedded Hallacar of Hyarastorni, producing a son who would rule Númenor after her as Tar-Anárion.
