Word of the Day: Pelendur – he was a Steward to the Kings of Gondor, in 1944. This is when King Ondoher and his sons, Artamir and Faramir, fell in battle. He was also the son (heir) of Húrin of Emyn Arnen.
(It is not to be confused with Palantir.)
After that, during the year of his ruling, he asked Gondor to reject Arvedui’s claim of the crown of Gondor as the resulting lone survivor.
Gondor responded saying that their royalties depended solely on Meneldil’s heirs, whom Isildur relinquished. (Lord of the Rings, App. A)
