Tar-MinastirTar-Minastir - "This name he had because he built a high tower upon the hill of Oromet, nigh to Andúnië and the west shores, and thence would spend great part of his days gazing westward.  For the yearning was grown strong in the hearts of the Númenóreans.  He loved the Eldar but envied them.  He it was who sent a great fleet to the aid of Gil-galad in the first war against Sauron.  He was born in the year 1474, and ruled for 138 years; he surrendered the sceptre in 1869, and died in 1873." ~Unfinished Tales (The Line of Elros: Kings of Númenor)
