As we close out the prose of this story, the king makes a great sacrifice for the greater good of Númenor, and the new queen becomes a pitiable creature with no hope for her own future.

We look at:
* Meneldur’s Sacrifice
* Aldarion’s Redemption
* Erendis’s descent into self-pity

Then, in our extended episode (become a member to get it at https://theonering.com/members):
* Did Aldarion provoke Sauron with his journeys to Middle-earth?
* Why does Tolkien focus so much on the problem with pride?
* Was Aldarion’s dream something given to him by the Valar (or Illuvatar)?
