Narmacil I of Gondor by neral85
Narmacil I of Gondor
Narmacil I – Otoquea Aran Ondonóreo (Narmacil I – the seventeenth king of Gondor)

Narmacil I inherited the Kingship of Gondor in 1226 from his father Atanatar II Alcarin. He also seems to have inherited his father's indolent disposition for in 1240 he declared Minalcar, the son of his younger brother Calmacil, to be the Regent of the realm. Not long after that, Easterlings started attacking Gondor again, so the regent led a great army and defeated them, while king Narmacil stayed behind. Narmacil ultimately became second childless King of Gondor and was succeeded by his younger brother Calmacil.


So here is another one of the kings of Gondor. Just like his father, Narmacil was not an active or capable king, so he is shown sitting comfortably, surrounded by luxury. His name means "fiery sword" so there is indeed a sword in the picture, but it is hanging idly on the wall. The concept of the decorative border is quite similar to that of Atanatar I, but its style is also inspired by Narmacil's name, so it should be reminiscent of fire and swords. I hope it does make that impression. :-)

Aside from being part of that series, I also submitted this picture for the NEVER SEEN BEFORE contest. There has apparently been no original picture of this very interesting (though not admirable) gondorian king anywhere online.

But you can find even more of my pictures on my website Angrenost.cz. It's in Czech, but you can still look at the gallery of illustrations. Enjoy! :-)

Atanatar II Alcarin of Gondor by neral85
Atanatar II Alcarin of Gondor
Atanatar II – Enenquea Aran Ondonóreo – ar Tárirya (Atanatar II – the sixteenth king of Gondor – and his queen)

Atanatar II was the sixteenth king of Gondor. His father Hyarmendacil I had been one of Gondor's greatest Kings, so Atanatar II inherited a powerful empire stretching from the Greyflood to the Sea of Rhûn, and to which even the Men of Umbar and Harad paid homage. The King loved luxury and it was during his reign that the original Crown of Gondor was replaced by a jeweled helm. "Men said precious stones were pebbles in Gondor for children to play with." The wealth and splendour of Atanatar's realm earned him the title Alcarin ('Glorious') but he did little to maintain its strength, and nothing to expand its influence. Thus already during Atanatar's reign, Gondor began to stagnate. Atanatar II ruled Gondor for seventy-seven years, during which the wealth and power created by his father slowly began to wane. He was succeeded by his equally lazy and indolent eldest son Narmacil I.


It's been a long time since my previous entry in the kings of Gondor series, but I've always wanted to continue, so at last here comes the most glorious of gondorian kings. For obvious reasons, I made the border extremely richly decorated, as compared to his predecessors (perhaps even deliberately over-decorated). The overall colouring and style is reminiscent of his namesake and ancestor Atanatar I and also inspired by gemstones and pearls, symbolizing Atanatar's wealth. As for the picture itself, I made Atanatar sitting comfortably on his throne (as the first king in this series, others so far were standing) – to show his indolence. Also mark the new crown of Gondor.
