Anardil (Q: "Devoted to the Sun") (Third Age 136 – 411, aged 275 years) was the sixth King of Gondor, ruling for 87 years, from Third Age 324 until his death. He was succeeded by his son, Ostoher.

Anardil's reign over Gondor was uneventful. He is remembered as the last of Gondor's kings to dwell exclusively in the capital of Osgiliath. Anardil's son, Ostoher, was to set the precedent of the kings spending the summer at Minas Anor, the citadel later known as Minas Tirith.
