Princes of Dol Amroth

In the literary works of J. R. R. Tolkien, the Princes of Dol Amroth were part-elven princes of Southern Gondor, second only to the Steward of the Realm by the time of the War of the Ring and the Restoration of the Heir of Elendil to the thrones of Arnor and Gondor.

The Princes ruled an autonomous southern Fiefdom known as "Dor-en-Ernil" - the Lands of the Prince, first settled by the Sindar of Lothlórien in the First Age as the Havens of Edhellond, where they set sail for the Undying Lands

History

The line of the Princes was founded by Imrazôr the Númenórean, who took as his wife Mithrellas of Lórien, it is not known how they first came to prominence, although by the time Isildur left Gondor , the Prince of Dol Amroth, although they did not yet hold this title, was already one of the Chief Nobles of the Kingdom and accompanied Isildur on his survey of Gondor's bounds, ending with the burial of Elendil upon Amon Anwar. They remained a power in Gondor until into the Fourth Age, Imrahil, Prince at the time of the War of the Ring, was the most powerful Prince of Dol Amroth, standing in as the Lord of All Gondor, flying the blue banner of Dol Amroth from the White Tower of Minas Tirith whilst Faramir lay in the Houses of Healing after his father Denethor II burnt himself alive.
