Tar-Vanimeldë, daughter of Tar-Telemmaitë, fifteenth King of Númenor, is the sixteenth Ruler and third Ruling Queen of Númenor:
Tar-Vanimeldë... was the third Ruling Queen; she was born in the year 2227 and ruled for 111 years until her death in 2637. She gave little heed to ruling, loving rather music and dance; and the power was wielded by her husband Herucalmo, younger than she, but a descendant of the same degree from Tar-Atanamir. Herucalmo took the sceptre upon his wife's death, calling himself Tar-Anducal, and withholding the rule from his son Alcarin; yet some do not reckon him in the Line of Kings as seventeenth, and pass to Alcarin.
