Contents

History

Celebrindor was the son of Celepharn, and came to the throne of Arthedain upon his father's death in 1191. His reign as king was 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.

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".
