Like Gondor, the kingdom of Arnor was founded by exiles fleeing the wreck of Numenor in the year 3320 of the second age. This list covers Arnorian armies in the third age, the second age armies being covered by the Numenorean list. Arnor fragmented in 3A861 into the kingdoms of Arthedain, Cardolan and Rhudaur, which are also covered by this list. Arthedain was destroyed by the Witch-king of Angmar in 3A1975. Cardolan was fatally weakened in 3A1409 but was not finally finished off until the plague of 3A1636. After 3A1350, Rhudaur was controlled by Dunlending hillmen, and is then covered by the Dunlending list. Kn (O) may always dismount as Sp (S) if the general of their command does so. Minimums marked * apply only if any Rivendell or Lindon allies are used. Cirdan may ony command Elves, and must command all non-Rivendell Elves used. He may not command any other troops.
