Vëantur (Q, pron. [veˈantur]) was a famous navigator of early Númenórean history, who served as Captain of the King's Ships under Tar-Elendil, the fourth King of Númenor. He was the first of the Númenóreans to achieve the voyage back to Middle-earth, reaching the Grey Havens in his ship Entulessë in the six hundredth year of the Second Age. He had a daughter, Almarian, who married Tar-Meneldur, the fifth King of Númenor.


Vëantur's name means either "Commander of Men" or "Manly Commander" in Quenya (from vëan, 'man', 'manliness' and -ntur, meaning 'commander').
