Revision as of 22:53, 4 June 2006

Valandil (Second Age 3430 – Third Age 249, aged 260 years) was the third King of Arnor, ruling for 239 years, from Third Age 10 until his death. He was the youngest of the four sons of High King Isildur. Valandil was only a child at the time of the War of the Last Alliance, and so remained in Rivendell when his father and brothers went south to battle Sauron. Because of this, he was the only one of Isildur's sons to survive the Disaster of the Gladden Fields.

Before he was slain, Isildur divided the lineages of Arnor and Gondor. While he had been High King of both realms, his nephew Meneldil would become King of Gondor and his sons would rule Arnor. With the death of his father and brothers, Valandil became King of Arnor at age 20. He was succeeded by his son Eldacar.
