Elendil and the Faithful evade Sauron's soldiers by moving ships offshore (estimated date)
Event Type: General
Age: Akallabêth/Last Alliance
An event in the prelude to the Downfall of Númenor; see that entry for an overview:
... Elendil had remained in Rómenna, refusing the summons of the King when he set forth to war; and avoiding the soldiers of Sauron that came to seize him and drag him to the fires of the Temple, he went aboard his ship and stood off from the shore, waiting on the time.
