Though each of his elder sisters had a claim on the Sceptre ahead of Súrion, their fear of the old Queen, their grandmother, Queen Tar-Ancalimë, meant that each of them refused to become their father's Heir, and so the Kingship of Númenor passed eventually to Tar-Súrion.
The history of Tar-Súrion's 162 years reigning years was fated to be dominated by the female side of the royal line. Not only was his inheritance due to the actions of his grandmother and elder sisters, but his own eldest child was a daughter, who would reign in her own right as Tar-Telperiën, Númenor's second Ruling Queen after he gave up the Sceptre at the age of 382 years.
