'''Lindórië''' was the sister of [[Eärendur, Lord of Andúnië|Eärendur]] of [[Andúnië]] in [[Númenor]]. Lindórië was part of the tradition of the [[Faithful]] associated with the [[:Category:Lords of Andúnië|Lords of Andúnië]], and she passed on her beliefs to her daughter [[Inzilbêth]]. Inzilbêth became Queen to King [[Ar-Gimilzôr]], who was ironically one of the greatest enemies of the Faithful, but her elder son [[Inziladûn]] was of like mind with his mother. So, when Lindórië's grandson took the [[Sceptre of Númenor]], he took an [[Elvish]] name, [[Tar-Palantir]], and did what little he could to reverse the work of the [[King's Men]].
