Twelfth King of Númenor 'the Shipbuilder'.
Born in the year 1634, and ruled for 160 years; he surrendered the sceptre in 2029, and died in 2035.
|He was a mighty King, but greedy of wealth. He built a great fleet of royal ships, and his servants brought back great store of metals and gems, and oppressed the men of Middle-earth. He scorned the yearnings of his father, and eased the restlessness of his heart by voyaging, east, and north, and south, until he took the sceptre. It is said that he constrained his father to yield to him ere of his free will he would. In this way (it is held) might the first coming of the Shadow upon the bliss of Númenor be seen.|
