(Q. 'one-glory') (Q. 'east victor')
(III 1126 – III 1366; ruled since III 1240)
Dúnadan, son of Calmacil and brother of Calimehtar. He became active in matters political and military, and he was handed control of Gondor by his uncle and king Narmacil I. In III 1248 Minalcar built a great army and wiped out the invaders from the lands west of the Sea of Rhûn and he took the name Rómendacil to mark this.
After Narmacil's heirless death, and a brief reign by his own father Calmacil, Minalcar finally ascended the throne as the 19th King of Gondor. Among others he fortified Anduin and built the Argonath in III 1340. Realising Gondor was weak in manpower he showed great favour to the Northmen, and sent his son Valacar to the court of Vidugavia. He was succeeded by his son Valacar.
