|Birth||After T.A. 1516 |
|House||House of Anárion|
In T.A. 1636 Minastan's elder brother Telemnar had sat on their father's throne for just two years when he died with all his heirs in the Great Plague. Minastan had also died by this time - perhaps he too met his end in the Plague - but he left behind a surviving heir, Tarondor, who became the first King of a new line.
Minastan is Quenya. Its meaning is not glossed, but as Paul Strack explains, it might mean "Smith of the Tower" and be a compound of a shortened form minas of minasse ("tower") and the suffixal form -tan of tamo ("smith, builder").
