The title taken by King Telumehtar

In the early years of Telumehtar's reign over Gondor, his country's coasts were still prey to assaults from the Corsairs of Umbar, under the command of the descendants of Castamir. Telumehtar resolved to put an end to these attacks, and in III 1810 marshalled an assault of his own. In a great victory, the Corsairs were driven out of Umbar, which was captured for Gondor, and Telumehtar added the title Umbardacil, 'Victor over Umbar', to his name. Umbar was held by Gondor throughout Telumehtar's reign, but was lost soon after his death.
