Physical Description

Gimilzagar was a Númenórean of the royal house, the younger son of King Tar-Calmacil the eighteenth ruler of the island kingdom. His line of descent made him the great-uncle of Tar-Calmacil's grandson Ar-Adûnakhôr, who broke with tradition by taking his royal name in the Adûnaic tongue. Some sources suggest that Gimilzagar was the ancestor of Inzilbêth the mother of Tar-Palantir, though the details of this ancestry are open to question.

Etymology

Gimilzagar seems to mean "Star-sword" in Adûnaic (from gimil, 'star' and zagar, 'sword').
