Númenóreans were the Men of Númenor, descendants of the Edain of the First Age, who were granted the island of Elenna as a dwelling place. They turned against the Valar, and their island home was destroyed in the last years of the Second Age.
They were notable from other Men in that they had extended lifespans lasting well beyond the averge lifespan of 80 years.
Sometimes misspelled as Númenoreans.
