Vardamir Nólimon (Q, pron. [ˈvardamir ˈnoːlimon]) was the brief second King of Númenor. His royal name was Tar-Vardamir ([tar-ˈvardamir]).

As the eldest of the four children of Elros Tar-Minyatur, Vardamir was the heir to the Sceptre of Númenor. He was noted as an exceptional scholar whose only desire was to study, not to rule. When Elros died, Vardamir was already advanced in years. He immediately abdicated in favour of his eldest son, who would rule as Tar-Amandil. However, Vardamir was still officially counted as the second King of Númenor, having nominally ruled for a single year.

Vardamir had four children: three sons, Amandil, Aulendil, and Nolondil; and one daughter, Vardilmë.

Etymology

Vardamir means "Jewel of Varda" in Quenya (from mírë "jewel"). His surname, Nólimon, means "Man of Knowledge" (from nólë "lore, knowledge" and -mon, a masculine suffix). Like all the rulers of Númenor who took royal titles in Quenya, Vardamir added the prefix tar- ("high") to his name when he received the Sceptre.
