Erendis was the wife of Tar-Aldarion, the seventh King of Númenor. She came from a family of lower status than Tar-Aldarion, so she had a lesser life-span than he. Erendis loved the land of Númenor, especially her own region of Emerië.

After courting for years, she and Aldarion married. Though Erendis resented it, Aldarion insisted on continuing with his voyages to Middle-earth, causing a rift between the two. Erendis took their daughter Ancalimë with her and went to live on her own on her farm. When Aldarion returned, he demanded to have his daughter returned to him, which Erendis did grudgingly, but her pride kept her from returning to him.

The partial story of Aldarion and Erendis can be found in Unfinished Tales. Though the story was left incomplete, the book does give some hints on how it concluded. In her old age Erendis dwelt in Emerië. When she heard that Tar-Aldarion was returning from his last voyage she journeyed incognito to the haven of Rómenna; there it is said she "perished in the water".[1]
