Tarannon Falastur

Tarannon Falastur was eleventh King of Gondor. His reign began with the death of his father Siriondil I in T.A. 830 and ended with his own death in T.A. 913. Since he died childless, his nephew Earnil I succeeded him. He was the first of the four Ship-kings, for he had served as the Lord-captain of Gondor's myriad vassal fleets under his father and had been the victorious Captain of the Hosts during the last years of Siriondil's reign. When he was crowned, he took the name Falastur. During his prosperous reign, Lond Ernil (Dol Amroth) was founded and Gondor's Royal Fleet was permanently established. Tarannon's warships ranged all over the Bay of Belfalas and conquered many coastal regions to the south, beginning Gondor's imperial era. The first plans to rebuild the ancient port of Pelargir dated from Tarannon's reign, but it was his successor, Earnil I, who actually executed the program.
