Tar-MeneldurTar-Meneldur - "He was the only son and third child of Tar-Elendil, and he was born in the year 543.  He ruled for 143 years, and surrendered the sceptre in 883; he died in 942.  His 'right name' was Irimon; he took his title Meneldur from his love of star-lore.  He married Almarion daughter of Vëantur, Captain of Ships under Tar-Elendil.  He was wise, but gentle and patient.  He resigned to his son, suddenly and long before due time, as a stroke of policy, in troubles that arose, owing the the disquiet of Gil-galad in Lindon, when he first became aware that an evil spirit, hostile to the Eldar and Dúnedain, was stirring in Middle-earth." ~Unfinished Tales (The Line of Elros: Kings of Númenor)
