Calimehtar was the thirtieth King of Gondor.

History

Calimehtar became King in Third Age 1856 after his father Narmacil II was killed by the Wainriders.

He gained fame by avenging his father's death in a battle at Dagorlad in 1899. The help of the rebelling people of Rhovanion (under Easterling rule at that time) was essential for the great victory Gondor won.

He died in 1936 and was succeeded by his son Ondoher.
