Valandil's mother Silmariën was Tar-Elendil's eldest child, but the Sceptre passed to her younger brother Meneldur because of the laws of succession at that time. Those laws were later changed, and if those later laws had held at the time of Tar-Elendil's death, the Sceptre of Númenor would have passed directly to Silmariën, and from her to Valandil and his descendants. Long after Valandil's time, his descendants would become Kings in their own right: in direct line through many generations, Valandil was the ancestor of Elendil, the first High King of the Dúnedain in Middle-earth. From Elendil, the line passed on through Isildur, Isildur's son (who was also called Valandil), and down the generations to Aragorn himself.
In the story of Aldarion and Erendis, Valandil held a feast around Second Age 700 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Guild of Venturers and another feast for Aldarion and Erendis after their wedding in 870.
