Calimehtar (T.A. 1736[1] - 1936,[2] aged 200 years) was the thirtieth King of Gondor.

[edit] History

Calimehtar's father, Narmacil II, had died in T.A. 1856 in the Battle of the Plains.[3] Determined to avenge this defeat, Calimehtar was preparing for war when messengers came to him from Marhwini (of the Northmen) warning him of plans by the Wainriders to raid Calenardhon across the Undeeps. However, the messengers also informed Calimehtar that a revolt of those enslaved after the Battle of the Plains was being prepared and would erupt should the Wainriders become involved in war.

As quickly as he could in T.A. 1899 Calimehtar led an army north from Ithilien, making sure that the enemy knew of his movements. Gathering all of their available strength, the Wainriders came down to meet him and the King gave way before them, drawing them away from their homes. A battle developed upon the Dagorlad which seemed in doubt until upon the flank and rear of the Wainriders fell Calimehtar's horsemen joined with a great éored let by Marhwini. Calimehtar's and Marhwini's victory was overwhelming and Gondor enjoyed a respite from war for 45 years.[4]
