Tarannon Falastur was one of the Dúnedain; the twelfth King of Gondor (TA 830-913); and the first Ship-King. His birth name was Tarannon but he took the crown as Falastur to commemorate his victories as Captain of the Hosts.

Falastur began the policy, kept until after TA 1200, of building great fleets and extending Gondor's power to the south.

The first childless king, Falastur was succeeded by his nephew Eärnil I.
