The One Wiki to Rule Them All

Elendil, the son of Amandil and first High King

The High Kings of Arnor, through Amandil, claimed descent from the Lords of Andúnië, and from there to Silmariën and the Kings of Númenor. Elendil and Isildur were Kings of Gondor as well as Arnor, but after Isildur's reign the realm was split. The next eight Kings all used the title of High King, presumably to emphasise their rights as the elder branch of Elendil's descendants.

After the tenth High King, Eärendur, the realm of Arnor was split between his three sons, founding the realms of Arthedain, Cardolan and Rhudaur: the elder line of Kings continued with the Kings of Arthedain.

By TA 1349 the descendants of Eärendur had died out in Cardolan and Rhudaur, and Argeleb I of Arthedain again claimed the title King of Arnor. After Arvedui the North-kingdom was no more, but the line of Kings continued in the Chieftains of the Dúnedain.
