Valandil (Second Age 3430 – Third Age 249, aged 260 years) was the third King of Arnor, ruling for 239 years, from Third Age 10 to 249. He was the youngest of Isildur's four sons. 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. At the age of 20 he became the third King of Arnor, and was succeeded by his son Eldacar.
