Imrazôr the Númenórean

Ancestor of the Princes of Dol Amroth

A nobleman who lived in the region of Belfalas in southeastern Gondor at the end of the second millennium of the Third Age. He was said to have wedded an Elf-maid named Mithrellas, a wandering companion of Nimrodel. Though it isn't known for sure whether this tradition is true, it is certain that his son Galador went on to found Dol Amroth.



Imrazôr's dates don't appear in any canonical source. Those given here are based on a marginal notation reproduced in volume XII of The History of Middle-earth (VII The Heirs of Elendil). They cannot therefore be considered completely reliable, though they do fit with the known dates of Imrazôr's heirs, and with events known to have happened during his lifetime.


By comparison with other Adûnaic names, zôr appears to mean 'fire', but this association is necessarily speculative.


Adrahil (not to be confused with Imrahil's father of the same name) was an apparent ancestor of the Princes of Dol Amroth who fought alongside Eärnil against the Wainriders. His family associations and his dates both imply that he was Imrazôr's father, but Tolkien never explicitly makes the connection.


Imrazôr's daughter Gilmith only appears in the commentary for a draft genealogy of the later Princes of Dol Amroth, reproduced in volume XII of The History of Middle-earth.
