In T.A. 913 he succeeded his uncle Tarannon Falastur, who died childless. Eärnil was the son of Tarannon's brother Tarciryan. He continued with the expansionist maritime policy of his predecessor by constructing a great navy and repairing the ancient havens of Pelargir, and then capturing the Haven of Umbar in T.A. 933. He was tragically lost at sea in 936 near Umbar and was succeeded by his son Ciryandil.
