This is a list of Kings of Arnor.

The Kings of Arnor, as decendants of Amandil, claimed descent from the Lords of Andúnië, and from there to the Kings of Númenor.

  1. Elendil, son of Amandil. He reigned from S.A. 3320S.A. 3441
  2. Isildur reigned S.A. 3441T.A. 2

    Elendil and Isildur were High Kings of Gondor as well as Arnor, but after Isildur the realms was split.

  3. Valandil reigned T.A. 2T.A. 249
  4. Eldacar reigned T.A. 249T.A. 339
  5. Arantar reigned T.A. 339T.A. 435
  6. Tarcil reigned T.A. 435T.A. 515
  7. Tarondor reigned T.A. 515T.A. 602
  8. Valandur reigned T.A. 602T.A. 652
  9. Elendur reigned T.A. 652T.A. 777
  10. Eärendur reigned T.A. 777T.A. 861, last King of Arnor

    After Eärendur the realm of Arnor was split between his three sons, founding the realms of Arthedain, Cardolan and Rhudaur: the elder line of Kings continued with the Kings of Arthedain. The list of Kings of Arthedain follows here:

  11. Amlaith, eldest son of Eärendur, first King of Arthedain. reigned T.A. 861T.A. 946
  12. Beleg reigned T.A. 946T.A. 1029
  13. Mallor reigned T.A. 1029T.A. 1110
  14. Celepharn reigned T.A. 1110T.A. 1191
  15. Celebrindor reigned T.A. 1191T.A. 1272
  16. Malvegil reigned T.A. 1272T.A. 1349

    In Third Age 1349 the descedants of Eärendur had died out in Cardolan and Rhudaur, and Argeleb I of Arthedain again claimed the title King of Arnor. The Kings of Arthedain were then added to the elder list of Kings. Argeleb, 7th King of Arthedain, is thus referred to as the 17th of the Kings of Arnor, and Arvedui was the 25th and last King of the Northern Line.

  17. Argeleb I reigned T.A. 1349T.A. 1356
  18. Arveleg I reigned T.A. 1356T.A. 1409
  19. Araphor reigned T.A. 1409T.A. 1589
  20. Argeleb II reigned T.A. 1589T.A. 1670
  21. Arvegil reigned T.A. 1670T.A. 1743
  22. Arveleg II reigned T.A. 1743T.A. 1813
  23. Araval reigned T.A. 1813T.A. 1891
  24. Araphant reigned T.A. 1891T.A. 1964
  25. Arvedui reigned T.A. 1964T.A. 1975, Last King of the North Kingdom.

After Arvedui the North Kingdom was no more, and the line of Kings continued in the Chieftains of the Dúnedain, the Rangers of the North.
