Elendil (SA 3119-SA 3441) known as Elendil the Tall or the Fair or Voronda meaning the Faithful. In Quenya Elvish Elendil means either “Elf-friend” or “Star-Lover”. He held the title of High King of the Dunedain, and also became the first king of both Gondor and Arnor after leading the 9 Faithful away from Numenor, following its downfall. Father to Isildur and Anarion. After the loss of Minas Ithil and being reunited with Isildur, Elendil created the Last Alliance of Elves and Men with Elven High King Gil-Galad. After defeating Saurons armies and entering Mordor, the seven year long siege of Barad-dur commenced. During the siege Anarion was killed, leaving Isildur as his heir. In SA 3441 Sauron entered the fight, Elendil and Gil-Galad managed to defeat him but they were killed in the process, with Elendil’s sword Narsil being broken as he fell. A shard of Narsil was then used by Isildur to cut the one ring from Saurons hand. Originally entombed secretly in the hill of Amon Anwar, Elendil’s casket was moved to Minas Tirith after the creation of Rohan.
