[edit] History

Siriondil was the son of Calimmacil, and a nephew of King Narmacil II (d. T.A. 1856) and as such, a distant cousin of King Ondoher of Gondor. He was probably named after his ancestor Siriondil, a former King of Gondor. In T.A. 1883 he had a son, Earnil.[1]

After Ondoher and his sons were slain in a battle against the Wainriders in T.A. 1944, the next year Eärnil was elected the thirty-second King of Gondor.[2]

Notes

  1. Based on the dates of Earnil's life, Siriondil must have flourished around the 19th century of the Third Age. The fact that his son became King instead of him in 1944, suggests that Siriondil was unavailable, or dead, by that date.
