365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 263: Lords of Adúnië

The Lords of Adúnië were the chief counsellors of the Kings of Númenor; toward the end of the kingdom, they were leaders of the Faithful. Living in Númenor’s westernmost province (Adúnië), they kept the traditions of friendship with the Eldar, even when the later Kings and people of Númenor began to grow envious of the High-elves. They were persecuted for their loyalty, but in the end were the only people to survive the Downfall; led by Elendil, son of Amandil (the last Lord of Adúnië), they made it to the shores of Middle-earth bearing the heirlooms of their House (the ring of Barahir, the palantíri, and the Sceptre of Annúminas).
