'''Ulbar''' was a [[Men|Man]] of [[Númenor]], who dwelt in the grassland region known as [[Emerië]] with his wife and his son [[Îbal]]. He originally herded the sheep of [[Hallatan]], the [[Sheep-lord]] of [[Hyarastorni]], to the south of [[Emerië]]. Hallatan was kin to the King's Heir [[Aldarion]], and Ulbar was drawn to Aldarion's seafaring [[Guild of Venturers]]. He sailed with Aldarion to [[Middle-earth]] in the great ship Hirilondë. On his return, years later, Aldarion gave Ulbar's wife a ring set with a scarlet jewel, which had been a gift from [[Gil-galad]] himself.

Ulbar was a shepherd for Hallatan who became a mariner of Aldarion.

Ulbar originally was a shepherd on a farm in Emerië, that was owned by Hallatan of Hyarastorni. However, when Ulbar heard of Aldarion's Guild of Venturers he joined them and became a crewman on the Hirilondë. Ulbar was gone for many years until Aldarion brought the ship home from Middle-earth.

When Ulbar's son Îbal asked how old one had to be to go to sea Aldarion gave him a bitter answer but gave Ulbar's wife a ring with a fiery red jewel that King Gil-galad had given him.[1]
