Ar-Adûnakhôr (Tar-Herunúmen)Ar-Adûnakhôr (Tar-Herunúmen) - "He was born in the year 2709, and he ruled for 63 years until his death in 2962.  He was the first King to take the sceptre with a title in the Andûnaic tongue; though out of fear (as aforesaid) a name in Quenya was inscribed in the Scrolls.  But these titles were held by the Faithful to be blasphemous, for they signified "Lord of the West" by which title they had been wont to name one of the great Valar only, Manwë in especial.  In his reign the Elven-tongues were no longer used, nor permitted to be taught, but were maintained in secret by the Faithful; and the ships from Eressëa came seldom and secretly to the west shores of Númenor thereafter." ~Unfinished Tales (The Line of Elros: Kings of Númenor)
