Alcarin

Revision as of 17:36, 1 July 2007 by Dr Death (Talk | contribs)

Alcarin ("Glorious" in Quenya) was the title of Atanatar II Alcarin, who ruled Gondor during the early second millennium of the Third Age, in a time when its wealth and power were legendary. Depsite the title, Atanatar in fact did little to build on the advances of his forebears, and history came to see his reign as the beginning of Gondor's decline.
