Tar-Telperien was the tenth monarch and second Ruling Queen of Númenór. She ascended the throne upon receiving the sceptre from her father, Tar-Súrion, in S.A. 1556. She never married during her long life, so she passed the mantle of lordship to her nephew Minastir. Minastir, the son of her younger brother Isilmo, served as her High-captain and the Regent of Númenór's colonies in Endor beginning in S.A. 1574, and it was he who ordered the great Númenórean fleet to sail to Gil-galad's aid in S.A. 1700. Telperien gave up the throne in S.A. 1731 and died later the same year.
