Revision as of 14:50, 17 February 2006 by Earendilyon (Talk | contribs)

Tar-Anducal ("Light of the West") was the king-name taken by Herucalmo, the consort of the third Ruling Queen of Númenor, Tar-Vanimeldë.

During his wife's reign, Herucalmo was the real power in the land of Númenor. After the Queen's death, he took the Kingship illegally in the name Tar-Anducal, and ruled the island kingdom for twenty years until his own death (from S.A. 2526 to 2657). He was succeeded by his son, the legal heir to Tar-Vanimeldë who took the throne as Tar-Alcarin.
