This article describes a concept which is mentioned in J.R.R. Tolkien's works, but was never given a definite name.
The Corsair Wars were a long, mostly naval struggle between Kings and Stewards of Gondor, and a series of renegade rebel forces based at Umbar and Pelargir.
In the aftermath of the Kin-strife, the great civil conflict between Eldacar and the usurper Castamir, Castamir's sons fled to to Umbar. There they established a breakaway government in opposition to Gondor, and continued to clash with Gondor for centuries to come.
