Adrahil II was the father of Imrahil of Dol Amroth. Adrahil was born in T.A. 2917. He was the son of Angelimir. Adrahil became the twenty-first Prince of Dol Amroth after his father's death in T.A. 2977.

Adrahil had three children. The eldest was a daughter named Ivriniel born in T.A. 2947. His daughter Finduilas, born in T.A. 2950, married Denethor II and was the mother of Boromir and Faramir. Adrahil's only son and heir Imrahil was born in Third Age 2955.

Adrahil died in T.A. 3010 and was succeeded by Imrahil.

Etymology

Adrahil is an Adûnaic name of unknown meaning.

The first element perhaps comes from a possible Adûnaic word *adar which may or not be related to Sindarin adar.

The second element -hil (also seen in the name Imrahil) perhaps is related to the Westron ending -kil (cf. banakil, Tarkil) meaning "man", ultimately related to Elvish "follower".
