Aldamir was the younger son of Eldacar but followed him as King due to the death of his brother Ornendil at the hands of Castamir the Usurper during the Kin-strife. Although Castamir later paid with his life for the killing of Ornendil, the sons of the Usurper successfully escaped and established an independent and hostile lordship in Umbar.
