Vardamir Nólimon ... was born in the year 61 of the Second Age and died in 471. He was called Nólimon for his chief love was for ancient lore, which he gathered from Elves and Men. Upon the departure of Elros, being then 381 years of age, he did not ascend the throne, but gave the sceptre to his son [Tar-Amandil]. He is nonetheless accounted the second of the Kings, and is deemed to have reigned one year.
