In those days the [[sceptre]] still passed to the eldest son of the king - if he had one - but Valandil, the son of Silmarien, became the first Lord of Andúnië. The royal houses of [[Arnor]] and [[Gondor]] derive their origins from his descendant [[Elendil]], the eighteenth and the last Lord of Andúnië.

According to the genealogical table in UT 210 Valandil was born in S.A. 630. In the story of [[Aldarion]] and [[Erendis]] Valandil is told to have held a feast in ca. S.A. 700 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the [[Guild of the Venturers]] (UT 182) and another feast for Aldarion and Erendis after their wedding in S.A. 870 (UT 189). The year of his death is unknown.
