Gimilzagar

Revision as of 22:52, 29 May 2006 by Rion (Talk | contribs)

A Númenórean of the royal house, being 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.
