Rómendacil II

Rómendacil II was a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's universe of Middle-earth

He was the son of King Calmacil, the second son of King Atanatar II Alcarin.

He was born in the last year of the long reign of Hyarmendacil I as Minalcar and he rose to a powerful position early because his uncle Narmacil I (first son of Atanatar II) felt uncomfortable with the Kingship.

He was his Regent from 1240 T.A. and struck a decisive blow at the Easterlings whom he defeated near the Sea of Rhűn.

He fortified Gondor and made pacts with the Northmen of Rhovanion

This was all done before he ascended the throne and when he did he immediatly took the name Rómendacil, the East-victor, like his far forefather Tarostar did.

He was responsible for the Argonath, the pillars of the Kings. They are known to stand above Nen Hithoel deep into the Fourth Age. To cement an alliance with the Northmen he sent his son Valacar as an ambassador.

While Valacar was on his mission he married Vidumavi, the daughter of Vidugavia, the King of Rhovanion.

Rómendacil died in 1366 T.A. and was succeeded by Valacar.
