==History==
During Tar-Elendil's reign, [[Vëantur]], the [[Captain of the King's Ships]], became the first [[Númenóreans|Númenórean]] to return to [[Middle-earth]]. In the year {{SA|600}}, he arrived at the [[Grey Havens]] with his ship ''[[Entulessë]]'', and met [[Gil-galad|Ereinion Gil-galad]], [[High King of the Noldor]].<ref>{{UT|Numenor}}</ref>  Vëantur's daughter, [[Almarian]], wedded Tar-Meneldur, and their child [[Tar-Aldarion|Aldarion]] inherited his grandfather's love of the sea.<ref>{{UT|Wife}}</ref>

Vëantur's daughter, [[Almarian]], wedded Tar-Meneldur, and their child [[Aldarion]] inherited his grandfather's love of the sea.
  
Tar-Elendil had three children: two daughters, [[Silmariën]] and [[Isilmë]]; and one son, [[Írimon]].<ref>{{UT|earlier}}</ref> Silmariën was the eldest child, but because of the law of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agnatic_primogeniture agnatic primogeniture] that existed in Númenor at that time, Írimon inherited the Sceptre and ruled as [[Tar-Meneldur]]. Silmariën became important in her own right as the link of the [[Lords of Andúnië]] to the royal house; her son was [[Valandil (Lord of Andúnië)|Valandil]], the first Lord.<ref name="Kings"/> Furthermore, Tar-Elendil also passed the [[Ring of Barahir]] down to Silmariën instead of his son; this choice, over ''many'' generations, allowed [[Aragorn]] to bear this heirloom during his coronation at the end of the [[War of the Ring]].

== Etymology ==
 
== Etymology ==
 
Elendil means "Friend of the [[Elves]]" in Quenya (from ''[[elen]]'' "star, Elf" and ''-ndil'' "friend, lover, devoted to"). Like all the rulers of Númenor who took their royal names in Quenya, Elendil added the prefix ''tar-'' ("high") to his name when he received the Scepter.

Tar-Elendil's [[Adûnaic]] name was "Ar-[[Nimruzîr]]" although it is not mentioned by Tolkien.<ref>[http://www.uib.no/People/hnohf/adunaic.htm Ardalambion Article on Adûnaic]</ref>

Obviously his [[Adûnaic]] name was "Ar-[[Nimruzîr]]" although it is not mentioned by Tolkien.
