Tar-Telperiën (Second Age 1320 – 1731, aged 411 years) was the tenth ruler of Númenor and its second Ruling Queen, reigning for 175 years, from Second Age 1556 until her death.

She was the eldest child of King Tar-Súrion, and was a proud and willful ruler. What records we have of her reign state that she refused to wed, and so died without an heir.

It was left to Tar-Telperiën's successor, Tar-Minastir, to react to these events.
