Erendis (Second Age 771 – 985, aged 214 years) was the wife of Tar-Aldarion, King of Númenor. She came from a family of lesser status than Tar-Aldarion, so she had a lesser life-span than he. She loved the land of Númenor, especially her own region of Emerië.

After courting for years, she and Aldarion married. Though Erendis resented it, Aldarion insisted on continuing with his voyages to Middle-earth, causing a rift between the two. Erendis took their daughter Ancalimë with her and went to live on her own on her farm. When Aldarion returned, he demanded to have his daughter returned to him, which Erendis did grudgingly, but her pride kept her from returning to him.

The partial story of Aldarion and Erendis can be found in Unfinished Tales. Though the story was left incomplete, the book does give some hints on how it concluded.
