Calmacil (T.A. 1058[1]1304,[2] aged 246 years) was the eighteenth King of Gondor.

History

In T.A. 1294, Calmacil succeeded his older brother Narmacil I as King.[2] However, he was already old when he came to the throne so he continued to have his son Minalcar function as Regent (a position that Narmacil had bestowed upon his son).[3]
