    • Fíriel daughter of Ondoher. Should have been ruling Queen, but was passed by
  33. Eärnil II r. 1945–2043. Was given the crown after a year of rule by the Steward Pelendur. A descendant of Telumehtar Umbardacil
  34. Eärnur r. 2043–2050 (probably). Last King of Gondor
  35. Elessar r. Fourth Age (F.A) 1-120, was the first king of the Reunited Kingdom
  36. Eldarion r. F.A. 120-?

Elendil was the first King of Arnor and was succeeded by Isildur. Elendil ruled over both realms as High King of the Dunedain-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 until the restoration of the line of Kings with Elessar (Aragorn), the first king of the Reunited Kingdom of Gondor and Arnor.
