Curse of the Mistwraith
Third Age 5637: The King is initially shown in a magical flashback by Arithon in the hold of the Briane. The flashback shows him threatening Queen Talera on the night she left him for Avar s'Ffalenn -- he expresses his frustration that she will not allow her dowry (elemental mastery in her offspring) to be used in the feud with Karthan. When Arithon is brought to Amroth addicted to sedatives, the King orders the royal healer to cure him on pain of death. He visits Arithon during the recovery. When Arithon is presented to the royal court of Amroth, the King orders that he be banished through the Worldsend gate after a vision of Talera appears before him.
