Imrazôr was a Gondorian Prince of Belfalas at the end of the second millennium of the Third Age. He was said to have wedded an Elf-maid named Mithrellas, a wandering companion of Nimrodel. His son Galador was the first Prince of Dol Amroth.[1]

Etymology

The meaning of the name is not known, however it includes Adûnaic zôr which means "flame" or "foam".

The first element imra (perhaps from *imar) is not translated but it also appears in the name Imrahil and perhaps Imâr.

Other Versions of the Legendarium

In an early manuscript Imrazôr and not his son was numbered as the first Prince of Dol Amroth.[2]

Note

Nowhere is it explained why a man living in Gondor late in the Third Age would have the epithet of "The Númenórean".
