The Dúnedain of the South were the Sindarin-speaking descendants of the original Faithful Númenórean settlers who had founded the Kingdom of Gondor. Though the lower urban classed quickly intermixed with the rural indigenous population and were considered Gondorian commoners or Tarkils, the high nobility and royal house long preserved a relatively pure Númenórean lineage (a racialism which indeed led to severe political conflicts with the indigenious Coastal People and Men of the White Mountains and culminated in the Kinstrife until these conflicts were finally settled under the Stewards who granted full citizenship to the former Peregrini).

Language

The southern Dúnedain spoke an archaic Westron while a few families, the House of Dol Amroth or the royal family, still preserved a Sindarin dialect as a language of etiquette and scholarship.
