Tar-Súrion (S.A. 1003 – 1574, r. 1280 – 1556), the 9th King of Númenor was the third child of Tar-Anárion, but both his sisters refused the Heirship, since their grandmother, Queen Tar-Ancalimë did not allow them to marry (UT 212; 220).

Having ruled for 162 years, at the age of 382 years, he surrendered the sceptre to his daughter Telperien who become the second Ruling Queen of Númenor assuming the name Tar-Telperiën.
