Hallacar was the son of Hallatan of Hyarastorni, being a descendant of Vardamir Nólimon.
History[edit | edit source]
Ancalimë was living in Emerië, hiding on a farm bordering the lands of Hallatan to avoid suitors, when she met a shepherd named Mámandil. She enjoyed his company since he was a skilled singer and met him often in the pastures. Eventually he declared his love for her but Ancalimë demurred since she was the Heir of the King. Mamandil then revealed that he was actually Hallacar of the line of Elros and pressed his suit. Still, Ancalimë rejected him although they were later wed.
Accounts differ as to the particulars of their marriage. One version stated that Hallacar persisted in seeking her hand and that Ancalimë was pressured by the Council of the Sceptre to accept him to bring quiet to the realm. Another version said that when her cousin Soronto called upon her to surrender the Heirship (which at the time required that a female Heir must resign if unwed beyond a certain limit), she married Hallacar to spite Soronto. Still another account suggested that Ancalimë married Hallacar after the provision had been removed, to ensure that Soronto could not become King if she were childless.
Thus, both married in S.A. 1000, despite it was clear was that Ancalimë desired neither love nor a son. After the birth of their son Anárion in 1003, there was strife between them when Hallacar secretly arranged for her serving-women to become married, which the Queen had forbidden, causing their separation.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Hallacar is a Quenya name. Its meaning is not glossed, but Paul Strack suggests it means "Tall Helmet", from halla ("tall") + car(ma) ("helmet").
Mámandil is also a Quenya name. Its meaning is not glossed, but Paul Strack suggests it means "Sheep-friend", from máma ("sheep") + -ndil ("friend, lover").
