The Destruction Of Numenor: The Rings Of Power

Númenor was a kingdom of Men, established on an island brought up out of the sea by the Valar in the early Second Age.

But After sometime Númenóreans got corrupted. They got divided into two groups known as ‘King’s Men’ and ‘The Faithful’.

The Faithful remained loyal to the Valar but King’s Men fell to the dark side and started hating Elves and Valar.

In their hate and evil intent King’s Men tried to attack Valar in order to seize the undying land, Valinor.

This enraged Eru Ilúvatar, the one true god, who then drowned the whole kingdom of Númenor, killing most of its inhabitants.

The destruction of the island is also called ‘The Downfall of Númenor,’ and the Fall or ‘Drowning of Númenor’.

The Faithfull escaped this catastrophe and they sailed to Middle Earth on nine ships.

After arriving on Middle Earth, The Faithful split into two groups and established two kingdoms namely Gondor and Arnor.
