Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Upon his father Elros' death, Vardamir did not take up the Sceptre of the King but instead abdicated in favour of his son. However, he is counted as the second ruler having nominally ruled for one year.
  2. ^ Silmariën would have been Ruling Queen by later changes in the laws. She founded the line of the Lords of Andúnië.
  3. ^ Usurper, not counted as rightful King.
  4. ^ Tar-Calmacil was the first Ruler to officially use an Adûnaic name. "Tar-Calmacil". The Encyclopedia of Arda. 
  5. ^ Tar-Ardamin is omitted from the list published in The Lord of the Rings, but he does appear in Unfinished Tales. In Appendix A of The Lord of the Rings, Tar-Calmacil was followed by Ar-Adûnakhôr. His name was apparently dropped by error.
  6. ^ As the eldest child and according to laws of succession changed since the reign of Tar-Aldarion, Míriel was the rightful Queen, but was forced to wed her cousin Ar-Pharazôn who usurped the throne.
