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. Recalling the death of Mindardil and rankled by the insolence of the Corsairs, Telumehtar resolved to put an end to these attacks. In T.A. 1810 he marshaled an assault of his own. In a great victory, the Corsairs were driven out of Umbar, which was captured for Gondor, the last descendants of Castamir were killed, 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.
