Tar-AldarionTar-Aldarion - "He was the eldest child and only son of Tar-Meneldur, and he was born in the year 700.  He ruled for 192 years, and surrendered the sceptre to his daughter in 1075; he died in 1098.  His 'right name' was Anardil; but he was early known by his name Aldarion, because he was much concerned with trees, and planted great woods to furnish timber for the shipyards.  He was a great mariner and ship-builder; and himself sailed often to Middle-earth, where he became the friend and counsellor of Gil-galad.  Owing to his long absences abroad his wife Erendis became angered, and they separated in the year 882.  His only child was a daughter, very beautiful, Ancalimë.  In her favour Aldarion altered the law of succession, so that the (eldest) daughter of a King should succeed, if he had no sons.  This change displeased the descendants of Elros, and especially the heir under the old law, Soronto, Aldarion's nephew, son of his elder sister Ailenel." ~Unfinished Tales (The Line of Elros: Kings of Númenor)
