    Kind of a trick question. 32 followed Isildur, however, Anarion was slain during the seige of Barah Dur. Don't know if it was before or after the dead of Elendil, which would have been when Isildur took over. So I would say 33, maybe 34 depending on what order Anarion and Elendil died in.

    Well. I counted all of the kings of gondor and depending on what order Anarion/Elendil died, one of my answers has to be the correct one. Unless I miss the meaning of the question somehow.

    From Elendil to Eldarion, Gondor had 35 kings. Anarion never became the king as he was the younger son of Elendil. Elendil and Anarion were both slain during the seige of Barah-Dur in the 2nd age. So, if Anarion died 1st, then there were 35 kings after his death. If Elendil died 1st, then Isildur would have been the rightful king at the time of Anarions death making the number 34.

    i see, I just don't get why in the appendixs its worded like this

    "There were thirty-one king in gondor after Anarion who was slian before the Barad dur."

    and then it goes on to talk about the history of gondor and the kings and stuff like that, anyways its your turn turin
