The etymology of Celebrindor's name is uncertain. The first element is the Sindarin element ''[[celebrin]]'' which means "silver, silver-like" (in an adjectival sense), but the second bit seems to be ''[[dor]]'' meaning "land, dwelling-place". Perhaps Celebrindor lived in a house which look silver?

Template:Royalty infoboxCelebrindor (T.A. 1062 - 1272, died aged 210) was the son of Celepharn, and came to the throne of Arthedain upon his father's death in 1191.

As far as we know, Celebrindor's time as king was peaceful and uneventful, as relations between the other realms of Arnor - Cardolan and Rhudaur - were good, and no evil threathened the realm yet - it was after Celebrindor's death that Angmar started to pose a threat to the peoples of Arnor.

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