The Tolkien Road

A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

0262 » The Kings of Númenor » Unfinished Tales » The Line of Elros » LOTR on Prime » Ar-Pharazôn

In this episode, we take a close look at “The Line of Elros: Kings of Númenor” from Unfinished Tales! It’s a brief and fascinating account of the 3000 year history of Númenor, and contains a lot that needs to be unpacked!

As we have explored before, the history of Númenor spans a vast period: over 3000 years. While works like “Akallabêth” and “The Tale of Years” also chronicle the events of this period, The Line of Elros approaches it by listing the generations of Númenor’s monarchs, which totals 25 here, and providing important details about them all.
