Tar-Aldarion becomes King of Númenor

Meaning: Son of the Trees

Event Type: Political

Age: 2nd Age - Pre-Rings

Year: 0883

Description:
Tar-Meneldur, his father was thrown into great doubt as to the right course when Gil-galad asked for the help of Númenor against the servant of Morgoth. The King therefore proclaimed "...first for the honour of his well-beloved son; and second for the better direction of the realm in courses which his son more clearly understands, the King has resolved: that he will forthwith resign the sceptre to his son, who shall now become Tar-Aldarion, the King."
This was unexpected, and the council, save for one, tried to dissuade Tar-Meneldur.
