Armenelos [the Golden] (Q. ‘Royal-fortress-of-the-Heavens’) was the chief city of Númenor, and in its later years, the largest. Standing near the centre of the island at the feet of the Meneltarma, it had surpassed Andúnië as Númenor’s capital. Located here were the Court of the Kings, Nimloth, and (eventually) the Temple built by Sauron. Armenelos, with the rest of Númenor, was destroyed in the Downfall in SA 3319.
