===The second Elendilmir===
The original Elendilmir was lost with Isildur, and so a copy was made by the elven smiths of [[Rivendell]] for his son [[Valandil (King of Arnor)|Valandil]]. This second Star of Elendil became the royal symbol of the [[Arnor|North-kingdom]] along with the [[Sceptre of Annúminas]]. After that kingdom's fall it remained an heirloom of the [[Heir of Isildur|Heirs of Isildur]] and kept in [[Rivendell]].<ref name=eriador/> It remained in Isildur's line down to the time of [[Aragorn]],<ref name="Gladden"/> who wore it during the [[Battle of the Pelennor Fields]].<ref>{{RK|V6}}</ref>

After the [[War of the Ring]], King Elessar ordered the restoration of Orthanc and then the original Elendilmir was found. As Elessar took up the kingship of [[Arnor]] he wore the original Elendilmir upon his brow. He would only wear it again on high days, whilst on other occasions he would wear the second Elendilmir that had descended to him.<ref name="UTIsen">{{UT|Isen}}, Appendix (ii)</ref><ref name="Gladden"/>
