Template:Royalty infobox'Valandur was the eighth King of Arnor, a direct descendant in right line of Elendil and Isildur, who succeeded his father, Tarondor, to the throne in 462.

Of his reign we know almost nothing, except that he suffered a violent but mysterious death after a rule of fifty years. He was succeeded by his son, Elendur, upon his death in 652.
