                Falastur 12th king. 1st Ship-king. Brother was Tarciryan. First childless king, succeeded by nephew Earnil
            2nd Line:
                Earnil I  13th king.
                Ciryandil  14th king
                Hyarmendacil I  15th king.
                Atanatar II  16th king.
                Narmacil I  17th king.

                Valacar  20th king.
                Eldacar 21st king.
                (10 year interruption to Eldacar's reign) Castamir of Ships, also called Castamir the Usurper. He was a cruel king, so when Eldacar returned ten years later with an army of Northmen, Eldacar had the support of the people of Gondor.
                Aldamir 23rd king
                Hyarmendacil II  24th king. .
                Minardil 25th king.
                Telemnar  26th king.
                Tarondor  27th king.
                Telumehtar Umbardacil  28th king.
                Narmacil II   29th king.
                Calimehtar  30th king.
                Ondoher  31st king. His two sons, Artamir and Faramir, were slain in battle on the Dagorlad. The sons died childless.
                Arveduil  32nd king. Ondoher's daughter, Firiel, married Arvedui, the 15th and last king of Arthedain, directly descended from Isildur. Firiel was heiress to the crown of Gondor by the laws of Numenor, but Gondor had not ever taken a ruling queen before. Arvedui of Arthedain's claim to the vacant throne of Gondor was rejected. Arvedui sent his sons to Lindon, saving them from the Witch-king. Arvedui and Firiel's elder son, Aranarth, became first Chieftain of the Dunedain of the North, carrying the bloodline of the High Kings.
            3rd Line:
                Earnil II  32nd king. After a year of dissension after Ondoher's and his sons' deaths, the crown was given to Earnil II instead of Arvedui, due in large part to dissension from Pelendur, King Ondoher's Steward. He was of royal lineage from King Telumehtar Umbardacil's second son, Arciryas (whose brother was King Narmacil II from whom Firiel was descended). Arciryas's son was Calimmacil, whose son was Siriondil, whose son was Earnil II.
                Earnur  33rd king. Son of Earnil II. He never married and produced no heir. That line of Anarion ended with him, the one from Telumehtar's second son Arciryas.
                Since there was no witness to Earnur's death, Mardil the Good Steward ruled in Earnur's name for him. Few descendents of pure blood of the kings survived the Kin-strife, and those had their claims contested, and everyone feared another Kin-strife which would destroy Gondor, so the Steward remained in power.
