Tar-Telperien, Queen of Númenor, dies
Event Type: Genealogical
Age: 2nd Age - Rings
She was long-lived (for the women of the Númenóreans had the longer life, or laid down their lives less easily).... Tar-Telperien was born in the year 1320; she ruled for 175 years, until 1731,1 and died in that same year.

1 The date 1731 here given for the end of the rule of Tar-Telperien and the accession of Tar-Minastir is strangely at variance with the dating, fixed by many references, of the first war against Sauron; for the great Númenórean fleet sent by Tar-Minastir reached Middle-earth in the year 1700. I [Christopher Tolkien] cannot in any way account for the discrepancy.
