Manwendil

Revision as of 14:21, 15 August 2006 by Hyarion (Talk | contribs)

Manwendil (early Second Age) was the third child, and second son, of Elros Tar-Minyatur, the first King of Númenor. Though he left descendants, nothing of their lives was recorded.

His name means "Devoted to Manwë" in Quenya (from -ndil = "friend, lover, devoted to").
