Also Known as Tar-Telemnar (Q."King Silverflame"), Ar-Gimilzor,born in S.A. 2960, was the twenty-second King of Númenor (S.A. 3102-3177) and father of both Tar-Palantir (Inziladûn) and Gimilkhâd. Selfish, irreverent, and jealous of the Eldar, he banned the use of Elvish tongues and persecuted the Faithful. His edict prohibiting the Eldar from visiting Westernesse caused great furor in western Númenor and spawned a sundering of popular sentiments all over the island realm. He forced his wife Inzilbêth into an unhappy marriage which resulted in a rivalry between their two sons. Inzilbêth favored the elder boy who, by law, was Ar-Gimilzor's heir. The King desired that his second son, Gimilkhâd, succeed him, but his wish ran contrary to Númenórean tradition.
