Calmacil (T.A. 1058[1]1304,[2] aged 246 years) was the eighteenth King of Gondor.

[edit] History

Calmacil was the father of Minalcar, whom his indolent older brother, King Narmacil I, bestowed upon him to be a Regent.

When Narmacil died without heirs in T.A. 1294, Calmacil was too old to succeed him as a King[2] so he continued to have his son Minalcar function as Regent[3] until he was properly succeeded after his death.
