Isilmo was the younger brother of Queen Tar-Telperiën. He had a son named Minastir. Tar-Telperiën outlived Isilmo, but she refused to wed and had no children. Thus, Tar-Telperiën was succeeded by Isilmo's son, her nephew, who became Tar-Minastir.

Etymology

Isilmo means "Man of the Moon" in Quenya (from Isil, 'Moon', and the masculine agentive suffix -mo).
