Realms in Exile also known as the Kingdoms of the Dúnedain was the collective name for Arnor and Gondor, the North-Kingdom and South-kingdom of the Dúnedain in the Westlands of Middle-earth. Both Kingdoms were founded in S.A. 3320[1] by High King Elendil, and his sons who ruled Ithilien and Anorien.

Arnor occupied a central part of Eriador until it vanished during the Third Age (divided in T.A. 861[2] and destroyed in 1974[3]) but at the end of that Age, the expanse of both kingdoms formed the Reunited Kingdom under Aragorn Elessar.
