Númenor

The Island of Númenor

Númenór
(Q."Westernesse") was the great island continent located in the middle of the Great Sea until its destruction (Downfall) in Second Age 3319. From the early Second Age until its Downfall, Númenor was occupied by the High Men (or Edain) who called themselves Númenoreans. These Men were the ancestors of the Dúnedain and Black Númenóreans. Númenor literally meant West Land and was the westernmost home of mortal Men. Elves called it Andor, the "Land of Gift."
