Men > Kings > Numenorean Kings > High Kings > Elendur > Earendur > Kings of Arthedain > Amlaith

    Earendur was the tenth High King of Arnor and Gondor. He succeeded Elendur.
    After Earendur, Arnor was divided into three parts for his three dissenting sons. The parts were Arthedain, Rhudaur, and Cardolan. The line of kings continued in Arthedain, eventually failing in Rhudaur and Cardolan, so that eventually the heir of Arthedain was again recognized as the High King.
    Amlaith, Earendur's eldest son, remained in Fornost in Arthedain.
