'''Telemnar''''s Kingship was one of [[Gondor]]'s shortest and most tragic. He succeeded to the throne after his father [[Minardil]] was brutally slain in a sudden [[Corsairs|Corsair]] attack on [[Pelargir]], but he was not to reign for long. After just two years on the throne, the [[Great Plague]] in [[Third Age]] 1636 came out of the east and ravaged Gondor.

History

Telemnar came to the throne unexpectedly when his father Minardil was killed in a surprise raid by Corsairs of Umbar.

The White Tree withered and died, Osgiliath was partially deserted and began to fall into ruin, and the watch on Mordor ceased.[4]

With Telemnar and all his heirs deceased, the Kingship passed on to his nephew Tarondor, the son of Telemnar's younger brother Minastan.[2]
