Tar-Ancalimon (Second Age 1986 – 2386, aged 400 years) was the 14th King of Númenor, ruling for 165 years, from 2221 until his death. He succeeded his father, Tar-Atanamir. His name means "Most Bright".

During Tar-Ancalimon's reign, two opposing parties arose among Númenóreans: the Elf-friends, or "Faithful", advocated continuing devotion to the Valar and friendship with the Elves. The "King's Men" arrogantly propounded Man's independence and self-determination, seeing how they had reached the apex of their might. This split would culminate in the Fall of Númenor.

Tar-Ancalimon was succeeded by his son, Tar-Telemmaitë.
