Ailinel married Orchaldor, a descendant of the House of Hador, and had a son named Soronto (“Eagle-friend”).

Tar-Telperiën – “Silver Queen”, born 1320 SA, she was the second Ruling Queen of Númenor, daughter of King Tar-Súrion (son of Anárion). She was named for Telperion, the White Tree of Valinor. She ruled for 175 years and during her reign the Rings of Power were forged and Sauron conquered Eriador. However, she did little to react to these events. She refused to marry and bore no children. She was succeeded by Tar-Minastir, the son of her younger brother Isilmo. She died in year 1731 of the Second Age at the age of 411 years.

Tar-Vanimeldë – “Queen of Fair Love”, born 2277 SA, she was the third and last Ruling Queen of Númenor, daughter of Tar-Telemmaitë. She had little interest in ruling, however, loving music and dance; so the power was wielded by her husband, the nobleman Herucalmo. When she died in 2637 SA at the age of 360 years, the Kingship should have gone to her son, Tar-Alcarin, but Herucalmo usurped the throne and ruled for twenty years as King Tar-Anducal. His rule was not considered legitimate and after he died in 2657, Alcarin became the rightful king.

Zamîn – woman who served in the household of Erendis in Emerië. She was an old country-woman, free-tongued, and not easily daunted. She was the childhood companion of Erendis’s daughter Ancalimë, the first Ruling Queen.
