History[edit | edit source]
Narmacil inherited the Kingship from his father Atanatar II Alcarin in T.A. 1226. He also seems to have inherited his father's indolent disposition for in 1240 he declared Minalcar, the son of his younger brother Calmacil, to be the Regent of the realm. During the remainder of Narmacil's reign Minalcar ruled in his name.
The Easterlings renewed their attacks with a small force, but Minalcar proved to be a vigorous Regent. While Narmacil stayed behind, Minalcar sallied forth in T.A. 1248 and defeated a large army between Rhovanion and the Sea of Rhûn. He then took the name of "Rómendacil" (and later would ascend the throne as Rómendacil II). Because he had learned that the Northmen were not always loyal to Gondor, soon after this victory, Rómendacil sent his son, Valacar, as an ambassador to secure their allegiance.
