#REDIRECT [[King of Gondor]]
The '''King of Gondor''' was the [[Númenórean]] ruler of [[Gondor]].
+
 
+
The King of Gondor governed the realm with the frame of ancient law, of which he was administrator (and interpreter) but not the maker.<ref name="politics">{{L|244}}</ref> The Kings were buried in the [[Hallows]] of Minas Tirith. Stone statues of the Kings were in the [[Tower Hall]]. The symbol of his authority was the [[Crown of Gondor]].
+
 
+
==History==
+
Through [[Amandil]] the Kings claimed descent from the [[Lords of Andúnië]], and from there to [[Silmariën]] and the [[King of Númenor|Kings of Númenor]]. The line of the Kings of Gondor was associated with the [[House of Anárion]].
+
 
+
Elendil was the first King of [[Arnor]] and was succeeded by Isildur.  Elendil ruled over both realms as High King of the Dúnedain-in-exile Isildur succeeded as High King as well upon his father's death.  Isildur committed Gondor to the rule of Meneldil the son of Anarion as sole King of Gondor, but Isildur's royalty in the South-realm remained, as his line was by right High King over both [[Arnor]] and [[Gondor]], though after Isildur's death, the realms were split. Isildur's heirs ruled Arnor and Anárion's heirs ruled Gondor.
+
 
+
Eärnur was taken in [[Minas Morgul]] and never seen again, and the Kingdom of Gondor was ruled by a succession of [[Stewards of Gondor|Stewards]] until the restoration of the line of Kings with Elessar ([[Aragorn]]), the first king of the [[Reunited Kingdom]] of Gondor and Arnor.
+
 
+
==List of Kings==
+
[[Elendil]], son of [[Amandil]], reigned titularly as [[High King of the Dúnedain|High King]] from {{SA|3320}} – {{SA|3441|n}} while his sons [[Isildur]] and [[Anárion]] were the co-rulers of Gondor itself until Anárion's death in {{SA|3440}}
