Tar-Calmacil was the eighteenth ruler of Númenor. He succeeded his father, Tar-Alcarin, as King. His name means "Bright Sword", which he took in recognition of the territorial victories he had in Middle-earth as a renowned captain of Númenor.

He was also the first King to have recorded an Adûnaic equivalent of his name: Ar-Belzagar. This signaled the rise of a faction known as the King's Men who were opposed to the Ban of the Valar.

There is a discrepancy in Tolkien's writings as to Tar-Calmacil's successor: Tar-Ardamin, his son, or Ar-Adûnakhôr, his grandson. Specifically, in Appendix A of The Lord of the Rings, Ar-Adûnakhôr is listed as his successor, but in the more expanded The Line of Elros: Kings of Númenor from Unfinished Tales, he is succeeded by Tar-Ardamin.
