Ar-Gimilzôr becomes King of Númenor
Meaning: The Silver Flame
Event Type: Political
Age: Akallabêth/Last Alliance
Took the sceptre on the death of his father, Ar-Sakalthôr.
His name in Quenya was Tar-Telemnar.
"He was the greatest enemy of the Faithful that had yet arisen; and he forbade utterly the use of the Eldarin tongues, and would not permit any of the Eldar to come to the land, and punished those that welcomed them. He revered nothing, and went never to the Hallow of Eru. He was wedded to Inzilbêth, a lady descended from Tar-Calmacil; 12 but she was secretly of the Faithful, for her mother was Lindôrië of the House of the Lords of Andûnië, and there was small love between them, and strife between their sons."
