Penrose Dynasty

The Penrose Dynasty was a line of Adari rulers descended from King Elroth, who founded the kingdom of Adar.

The House of Penrose founded Adar in the year 232/4, and its forty-five monarchs ruled over the kingdom from the Platinum Throne.

For many years the royal family of Adar maintained close ties with its sister-kingdom of Amar, but the family soon came under the sinister influence of Alokkair the Sorcerer and turned to evil.

The Penrose Dynasty came to an end when King Koroth II was slain in the Battle of the Dawn in 1297/4.

The Second Dynasty

A second Penrose Dynasty began when Koroth’s descendants later founded the eastern barbarian kingdom of Drakhara in the Fifth Age. Little is known of this lineage, except that the last monarch of Drakhara, who was also named King Koroth, became the first of Sorimmar’s Zûl.

Not all members of this noble family were evil. In 585/4 of the Fourth Age, Adleroth Penrose left the royal court of Adar with his family and wealth and moved to what is now Derianor. Once there, he founded the Freehold of Dorada, and Lord Thalen Penrose founded the Silver Ravens.
