Tar-Palantir

The last Faithful King of Númenor

Rulers of Númenor

The twenty-fourth, and last but one, of the Kings of Númenor. In his time, the Númenôreans had turned their backs on the Valar and the Elves, and he attempted to bring them back to the old ways. His policy of reform would likely have been continued by his daughter Míriel, but her throne was usurped by Ar-Pharazôn.
