Also called Tar-Falassion (S."Man of the Coast"), Ar-Sakalthôr was the twenty-second King of Númenór. He was born in Armenelos in S.A. 2876. He followed the royal tradition of turning away from the ways of the Valar. His short reign began with the death of his father, Ar-Zimrathôn (Tar-Hostamir), in S.A. 3033 and ended with his own death in S.A. 3102. A cold man, he remained aloof from both his family and his subjects, and his eldest son and successor, Gimilzôr, grew up a bitter, irreverent child.
