Kingdoms is the most content-rich expansion ever produced for a Total War game, with four new entire campaigns centered on expanded maps of the British Isles, Teutonic Northern Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas.

In Medieval II, you were only given a tantalizing glimpse of South America, but in Kingdoms, vast tracts of land in both North and South America have been opened up for you to conquer.

All-new factions from the New World are also now fully playable, including the Aztecs, Apaches, and Mayans.

The DCI team is happy to present the kings of Gondor, sons of Elendil, crafted by Luis Lux:

Isildur and Anárion

The sons of Elendil were born on Númenor, Isildur in 3209 and Anárion in 3219 of the Second Age.
They heeded their grandfather Amandil, Lord of Andúnië and leader of the "Faithful", the minority among the Dúnedain, who upheld friendship with the Elves and reverence for the Valar; opposed by the decadent and vicious majority, known as the "King's Men", who by this time passionately envied immortality and hardened their hearts against the Valar.
In 3261 the king Ar-Pharazôn sailed to Middle-earth to challenge Sauron, and took the Dark Lord captive. This was part of a cunning scheme however, and Sauron, in his fair and deceptive form, soon became closest to the secret counsels of the King, and he lied about the Valar and promoted Melkor (Morgoth) as God. Then Ar-Pharazôn turned back to the worship of the Dark, at first in secret, but ere long openly and in the face of his people; and they for the most part followed him.

When Sauron argued to have the White Tree of Númenor destroyed, Isildur in disguise entered the forbidden courts of the King in the cover of night. But the guard was aroused, and he was assailed, and fought his way out, receiving many wounds; but he brought with him a single fruit, the sire of all later White Trees.
Before the end Sauron turned the King's Men into worship of himself and set Númenor on the path of war against the Valar. Amandil advised his heirs to take no part in it, ere he was succeded by his son Elendil. The persecuted Faithful, who had not already emigrated or been killed, then in secret made ready to flee to Middle-earth.
Among them were Isildur's son Elendur, and Anárion's infant son Meneldil, who was the last born on Númenor.

In 3319 of the Second Age, Ar-Pharazon invaded Valinor in an attempt to gain immortality, and the divine punishment was the drowning of island of Númenor.
The Faithful escaped the Downfall in nine ships; for Isildur three, and for Anárion two. Elendil eneded up in the north and founded Arnor, while his sons landed in the south and founded Gondor. There, to Pelargir, for a long period only the Faithful of Númenor had come, and many therefore of the folk of the coastlands in that region were in whole or in part akin to the Faithful and the people of Elendil, and they welcomed his sons.
Osgiliath the brothers founded; and eastward Minas Ithil, the Tower of the Rising Moon, as a threat to Mordor; and westward Minas Anor, the Tower of the Setting Sun, as a shield against the wild men of the dales.

In Minas Ithil was the house of Isildur, and in Minas Anor the house of Anárion, but the brothers shared the realm between them and their thrones were set side by side in the Great Hall of Osgiliath.
These were the chief dwellings of the Númenóreans in Gondor, but other works marvellous and strong they built in the land in the days of their power, at the Argonath, and at Aglarond, and at Erech; and in the circle of Angrenost, which Men called Isengard, they made the Pinnacle of Orthanc of unbreakable stone.
In time it became apperent that Sauron had not been destroyed when Númenor sank, but the accursed spirit had returned to Mordor where he wrought himself a new, terrible shape and meditated war.

When therefore Sauron saw his time, in this year of 3429, he came with great force against Gondor, and he took Minas Ithil, and he destroyed the White Tree of Isildur that grew there. But Isildur escaped, and taking with him a seedling of the Tree he went seeking Elendil for aid.
Meanwhile Anárion holds Osgiliath against the Enemy, and he knows that unless help will come the kingdom will not long stand... but this is the time for the Last Alliance.


Isildur means "Devoted to the Moon" and to reflect his relationship to the moon [Ithilien, Minas Ithil], his harness goes in a colder tone reminiscent of the night shine.
Anárion on the other hand means "Sun-scion" and to reflect his relationship to the sun [Anorien, Minas Anor], his outfit goes in a warmer tone reminiscent of the day glow.

Alrigth since some of you seem to not notice it, THIS IS NOT A F2P GAME YOU HAVE TO BUY IT, and asking for a download link is asking for a pirated version that you should be able to find by yourself.
