|Birth||Before S.A. 771 |
Beregar was a nobleman of Númenor, descended from the House of Bëor.
Beregar was a descendant of Beleth, daughter of Bregolas, of the House of Bëor.
He lived in the region of Númenor known as the Westlands. Beregar married Núneth and they had a daughter named Erendis, whom Beregar brought to the feast held when the son of Tar-Meneldur was proclaimed as his heir. There Erendis became enamoured of Aldarion and eventually became his queen. Aldarion and Erendis had a daughter of their own, and so Beregar became the grandfather of the first Ruling Queen of Númenor, Tar-Ancalimë.
Beregar could be Sindarin, meaning "Fierce lord", from BEREK ("fierce, wild") and ar ("noble"); or it could be related to the old Bëorian name Bereg.
