The Silmarillion, Quenta Silmarillion, XXIV - Of the Voyage of Eärendil and the War of Wrath

"But to Elros, who chose to be a king of Men, still a great span of years was allotted, many times that of the Men of Middle-earth; and all his line, the kings and lords of the royal house, had long life even according to the measure of the Númenóreans. But Elros lived five hundred years, and ruled the Númenóreans four hundred years and ten."

The Silmarillion, Akallabêth
