Celebrindor (T.A. 1062[1] - T.A. 1272,[2] died aged 210) was the fifth King of Arthedain/

History

Celebrindor was the son of Celepharn, and came to the throne of Arthedain upon his father's death in 1191.[2] His reign as king was uneventful, as relations between the other realms of Arnor - Cardolan and Rhudaur - were good, and no evil threatened the realm yet - it was after Celebrindor's death that Angmar started to pose a threat to the peoples of Arnor.[3]

Celebrindor died in 1272 after ruling the Northern Kingdom for eighty-one years. He was succeeded by his son Malvegil upon his death.[2]

Etymology

The etymology of Celebrindor's name is uncertain. The most likely meaning is "silverlike lord" from celebrin "silver-like (adjective)" and taur, which means among other things "lord".
