Tar-Alcarin was the seventeenth King of Númenor. His name means "the Glorious".

His parents were the Ruling Queen, Tar-Vanimeldë, and her husband, Herucalmo. Tar-Alcarin should have succeeded his mother upon her death, but Herucalmo usurped the Sceptre as Tar-Anducal. He ruled the Kingdom illegally for twenty years before he died, at which time Tar-Alcarin became the rightful King. Tar-Alcarin then removed his father from the Royal Line so he would never be recorded as a King of Númenor.

Despite the troubled beginning, Tar-Alcarin's reign was a peaceful one in Númenor. In Middle-earth, however, Sauron again ruled the lands. After his death, he was succeeded by his son Tar-Calmacil.
