When the wise King Tar-Palantir died, the Sceptre of Númenor should rightfully have passed to his only child, his daughter Míriel. Instead, his nephew Pharazôn usurped the throne, and forced Míriel to become his Queen, giving her the royal name of Ar-Zimraphel. Years later, King Ar-Pharazôn left Ar-Zimraphel in Númenor when he sailed on the Blessed Realm with an invading army. When the resulting storm came against the Isle she tried to ascend the Holy Mountain of the Meneltarma, but was lost in the Downfall with almost all her people.
