House of Anárion
In the literary works of J. R. R. Tolkien the House of Anárion was the Royal House of Gondor, descended from Anárion, joint first King of Gondor with his elder brother Isildur who went north to Arnor. When the last King of Gondor died without an heir, the Stewards of the House of Húrin ruled in their stead for the next 969 years until the House of Elendil successfully reclaimed the Throne after the War of the Ring.
