Narmacil II (T.A. 1684[1] - 1856,[2] aged 172 years)was the twenty-ninth King of Gondor. Narmacil was the son and successor to Telumehtar Umbardacil and brother of Arciryas.[3]

History

During Narmacil's reign a new confederacy of many peoples called the Wainriders appeared from the East. Encouraged by emissaries from Sauron they suddenly assaulted Gondor.[3] Narmacil brought a great army into the plains south of Mirkwood and gathered what remnants of the Northmen we could to meet the threat.[4] However, these new enemies were stronger and better armed than before, traveling in great wains with warriors mounted in chariots. In the Battle of the Plains Narmacil was slain north-east of the Morannon. Thereafter the people of southern and eastern Rhovanion were enslaved while the border of Gondor was withdrawn to the Anduin.[3]
