His parents were the [[Ruling Queen of Númenor|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]].
