Physical Description

Tar-Vanimeldë was the daughter of Tar-Telemmaitë and the sixteenth Ruler of Númenor; the third and last Ruling Queen.

Tar-Vanimeldë gave little thought to the practicalities of government, preferring music and dancing. The day-to-day affairs of state she left to her husband Herucalmo, who was of noble descent himself, and who effectively ruled Númenor while his wife held the Sceptre.

When she died, her son Alcarin should have taken up the Sceptre, but Herucalmo refused to give up his power. Instead, though he had no legal claim to the throne, he took the name Tar-Anducal and ruled as King for the next twenty years. After Herucalmo's death, the line passed back to its rightful heir, his son, who became Tar-Alcarin.
