Telumehtar was the twenty-eighth King of Gondor. He succeeded his father Tarondor in T.A. 1798. His reign was largely uneventful except for the recapture by surprise of Umbar in T.A. 1810. After this event he took the title Umbardacil ("victor over Umbar"). He was succeeded by his son Narmacil II in T.A. 1850.


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 Third Age 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. The Haven of Umbar was held by Gondor throughout Telumehtar's reign, but was lost soon after his death.
