Second Age 883
Notable events in this year include:
- Tar-Meneldur surrenders the Sceptre.
- Tar-Aldarion, son of Tar-Meneldur, becomes King of Númenor.
- Tar-Aldarion departs to Mithlond to revisit Middle-earth in the same year or the next.
- No records are left of the later voyages of Tar-Aldarion, but it is known that he went much on land and sea and went up the river Gwathló as far as Tharbad and met Galadriel there. His works at the harbour of Vinyalondë were swept away. The works that he began again there were never completed and the sea gnawed at them.
