Tar-Ardamin (Q, pron. [taˈrardamin]) or Ar-Abattârik is sometimes listed in the list of rulers of Númenor but is sometimes omitted. He was the son of King Tar-Calmacil, and if he is counted as one of the rulers, then he is the 19th in the line of kings.[1]

Contents

[edit] History

In private, the King's Men called him by a name in their own Adûnaic language: Ar-Abattârik. This King was the last to follow the practice of using an official Quenya name. His son Ar-Adûnakhôr abandoned the old traditions, and used Adûnaic in his official name.

Ar-Adûnakhôr is generally counted as the twentieth ruler.[1]

[edit] Etymology

In Adûnaic, Ar-Abattârik means "Pillar of the World".

Ardamin contains the Quenya word Arda ("world"); the element min usually means "one" but in this name, it might also be understood as "pillar" or "tower" (cf. Sindarin minas "tower").

[edit] Other Versions of the Legendarium

It should be said that there is some doubt over the character of Ar-Abattârik. He is listed in the detailed annals of The Line of Elros: Kings of Númenor as the son of Tar-Calmacil and father of Ar-Adûnakhôr,[1] but in Appendix A I (i) to The Lord of the Rings, the relevant section of the King-lists[2] appears like this:

"...Tar-Calmacil. After Calmacil the Kings took the sceptre in names of the Númenorean (or Adûnaic) tongue: Ar-Adûnakhôr..."
Appendix A I (i)

It seems most likely, as Christopher Tolkien suggests, that this omission is probably a simple mistake, and that Tar-Ardamin or Ar-Abattârik should appear in the list at this point.[3]
