Notes
   The sign indicates a premature death, in battle or otherwise, though an annal of the event is not always included.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers

1   This text is from one of Tolkien's early drafts. The final Tale of Years lists the date of Elendil's march to Imladris, and presumably therefore Valandil's birth, as 3431. There is nothing to indicate that Isildur went to Imladris before Elendil, so Valandil's birth date was adjusted to match the later, canonical source.
