Valandil

Valandil is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's universe of Middle-earth.

He was King of Arnor from 2 TA to 249 TA.

He was the fourth son of Isildur, his elder brothers were killed by Orcs at the Gladden Fields along with their father.

Valandil and his mother were in Rivendell when news of the fall of Isildur reached them.

After this disaster Valandil inherited the High Kingship over the Dúnedain. Because he was in his minority when he ascended the throne he had no power in Gondor where his cousin Meneldil was left by Isildur to rule it.

For the first eight years his mother ruled in his stead and in 10 TA he received the symbol of his kingship, the sceptre of Annúminas.

In that city he dwellt in peace till his death in 249 TA.

He was succeeded by his son Eldacar
