I have been trying to track the Ancestral line from Elros to Eldarion, and I am having trouble finding any reference after Valandil, son of Silmarien. I know that the line continues through to Earendur and on to Amandil, Elendil, Isildur etc. but I don’t know the names in between or even how many generations there are.

Any leads would be helpful.

We don’t know nothing about descendants and future Lords of Andunie after Valandil all the way until Earendur who is mentioned to be the 15th Lord of Andunie. Earendur was the grandfather of Numendil who was the father of Amandil who in turn was father of Elendil.

Finellach thanks - I hadn’t heard of Numendil, that fills one empty slot.

Eldacar was the heir of Valandil, and grandson of Isildur, and took up the throne when his father died. I dunno if you had that one already or not, but it might fill one slot you were looking for. I can’t find any references after that, however. Guess they got lazy with their record keeping.

Aslar thanks, I did have Eldacar and I think I found my missing link: the un-named son of Earendur and father of Numendil.

I found in Unfinished Tales that Earendur is the 15th, Numendil is the 17th Lord of Andunie and Amandil the 18th, but the 16th is not named.

So if I have it all right Valandil was the 1st
2nd through to the 14th are un-named
Earendur 15th
un-named 16th
Numendil 17th
Amandil 18th and last
and then on to Elendil and Isildur.

Sorry for the double post, apologies Finellach, I just re-read you post and realised that you said Earendur grandfather of Numendil, which I read first time to be father of.
