" Et Earello Endorenna utúlien. Sinome maruvan ar hildinyar tenn' Ambar-metta."
Elendil's Oath

Realms in Exile also known as the Kingdoms of the Dúnedain was the collective name for Arnor and Gondor, the North-Kingdom and South-kingdom of the Dúnedain in the Westlands of Middle-earth. Both Kingdoms were founded in S.A. 3320[1] by High King Elendil, and his sons who ruled Ithilien and Anórien.

Arnor occupied a central part of Eriador until it vanished during the Third Age (divided in T.A. 861[2] and destroyed in 1974[3]) but at the end of that Age, the expanse of both kingdoms formed the Reunited Kingdom under Aragorn Elessar.

For some part of their existence, occupied with wars and other disasters, the two Realms were estranged and stopped communication; that was until the time of Kings Araphant of Arnor and Ondoher of Gondor when they took counsel together. Then it was determined that one single power and will was directing attacks against the Dúnedain. In T.A. 1940 their heirs Arvedui of Arnor wed Fíriel of Gondor.[4]

However they could not profit from the new-formed alliance as Angmar and the Wainriders reappeared simultaneously. It was too late when Gondor could send Prince Eärnur to aid Arthedain.[5]
