[edit] History

The Princes are the male heirs of the House of Dol Amroth. That House was of noble Númenórean origin from the Second Age; they were Faithful akin to the Lords of Andúnië in Númenor, and later Elendil gave to their ruler the title of Prince.[1]

After the drowning of the Elven King Amroth and the departure of the Elves, Gondorians came to occupy it and named it Dol Amroth, after the king. The first Prince of Dol Amroth was Galador, who, according to legend, was the son of Mithrellas, an Elf maid.[2] This supposed elven strain was noticed in Imrahil many years later by Legolas.[3]
