Tar-Palantir

In the fictional universe of J. R. R. Tolkien, Tar-Palantir was the 24th ruler of N˙menor. He attempted to return his people to the ways of the Valar and the Elves, but his younger brother, GimilkhÔd, and GimilkhÔd's son Ar-Pharaz˘n opposed his policies. His father Ar-Gimilz˘r, whom he succeeded, was an opponent of the Valar and the Elves, but Ar-Gimilz˘r's Queen, Inzilbŕth, taught her son Tar-Palantir to be an Elf-Friend. The Adunaic version of his name was Ar-Inziladun.
