29. Whom Shall Reign

Having refused to marry, Tar-Telperien had no heir to take up rule of the Isle of Numenor. The question of rule was left unanswered, for the Queen, in her pride and willfulness had yet to name her successor. Now, the queen lay frail and dying. Minutes turned in hours, and yet she remained silent. Her Majesty seemed to be gathering her last strength, waiting for the right time to speak. Finally, as the sun's light faded, she took breath and named her nephew King. After that, she breathed her last, finally leaving life behind as twilight spread across the island.
