Imrazôr was a Gondorian Prince of Belfalas at the end of the second millennium of the Third Age. He was said to have wedded an Elf-maid named Mithrellas, a wandering companion of Nimrodel. His son Galador was the first Prince of Dol Amroth.[3]

[edit] Etymology

The meaning of the name is not known, however it includes Adûnaic zôr which means "flame" or "foam".

The first element imra (perhaps from *imar) is not translated but it also appears in the name of his descendant, Imrahil and perhaps Imâr.

Imrazôr, who seems to have retained the usage of Adûnaic in his House, was also known as The Númenórean. Why a Gondorian noble of the Third Age would be called "the Númenórean" is not made clear from the context.[4]

[edit] Other versions of the legendarium

In an early manuscript Imrazôr and not his son was numbered as the first Prince of Dol Amroth.[5]

[edit] Notes

  1. Adrahil's family associations and his dates both imply that he was Imrazôr's father, but Tolkien never explicitly makes the connection. The dating is consistent with Adrahil being the father of Imrazôr, and hence Galador's grandfather, but the evidence on this point is slim.
