Siriondil (T.A. 570[1]830,[2] aged 260) was the eleventh King of Gondor.

Contents

[edit] History

Siriondil's rule was apparently uneventful. He had two children, Tarannon and Tarciryan.[2]

He was succeeded by his illustrious son Tarannon Falastur, the first of the four Ship-kings of Gondor.

[edit] Etymology

Siriondil is Quenya for "River-friend". Sirion seems to refer to the Anduin rather than the river Sirion in Beleriand of old.
