   The Men of the Three Houses of Bëor, Haleth, and Hador, the Edain. In the Akallabêth and in Of the Rings of Power used of those Númenóreans who were not estranged from the Eldar; see Elendili. In 'Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age', the reference is no doubt to the Men of Gondor and the Dúnedain of the North.
   Those Mortals with the special favour of the Elves.
   Those, usually among Men, who were recognised by the Elves as providing special aid or alliance. The Elvish term was Elendili, seen for example in the name of Elendil.
