}}'''Tar-Ancalimon''' ([[Quenya|Q]], pron. {{IPA|[ˌtaraŋˈkalimon]}}, stem ''Ancalimond-'') was the fourteenth [[King of Númenor]]. He succeeded his father [[Tar-Atanamir]]. His name means "Most Bright".
  
It was during Tar-Ancalimon's reign that the [[Númenóreans]] split into two factions: The larger portion called themselves the "[[King's Men]]", following the Kings in their growing opposition to the [[Ban of the Valar]].  Envious of the [[Eldar]] they began to forsake the Elven-tongues. Those who maintained friendship with the Eldar were called the "[[Faithful]]"; they continued to revere the [[Valar]].
+
During Tar-Ancalimon's reign, two opposing parties arose among [[Númenóreans]]: the [[Elf-friends]], or "[[Faithful]]", advocated continuing devotion to the [[Valar]] and friendship with the [[Elves]]. The "[[King's Men]]" arrogantly propounded [[Men|Man's]] independence and self-determination, seeing how they had reached the apex of their might. This split would culminate in the [[Akallabêth|Fall of Númenor]].
  
Despite their rejection of the Elven-tongues, the royal titles were still given in [[Quenya]]. This was done out of custom and for fear that breaking the time-honoured usage would create ill-fortune.<ref>{{UT|Kings}}, Tar-Ancalimon</ref>

Tar-Ancalimon was succeeded by his son, [[Tar-Telemmaitë]].
