Because her brother [[Tar-Aldarion]] had only one child — a daughter — he changed the law of succession so that his child could become a [[Ruling Queen of Númenor|Ruling Queen]]. According to some readings of [[Númenor]]'s complex laws of inheritance, if the law had not changed, Ailinel's son [[Soronto]] would have become [[Tar-Aldarion]]'s heir. If history had been different, then, Ailinel would have been the foremother of the succeeding Kings of [[Númenor]] (though sources differ on the technicalities of this point).
