Umbar. Shining jewel of the south, haven of the Numenoreans, great citadel of Gondor's foes. A prosperous and highly wealthy city, the haven of Umbar has expanded her hegemony over all the Firth and beyond. Rich beyond measure, trade from all corners of Arda has allowed it to prosper beyond even the Gondorian ports' wildest dreams...its people know no poverty, its lords no limit.

Umbar was established in the second age by Numenorean settlers and colonists, and soon grew wealthy and powerful - the mightiest of the Numenorean colonies, to say the least. As it grew, it captured more and more lands around the firth, establishing border forts and founding new towns on the eastern march regions. Towards the end of the second age, Umbar sided with the King's men under Ar-Pharazon against the Elendili, and served as the landing point of the great host of Numenor that utterly destroyed the forces of Sauron. When Numenor fell a few years afterward, Umbar was left alone, standing in a sea of enemies and vengeful tribesmen.

Over the years of the Third Age, Umbar continued to grow stronger and stronger, establishing its dominance in the south. However, there was a catch - the numenorean elite ruled as oligarchs, ignoring the plight of the destitute natives and southron tribal immigrants. In a bid to prevent a popular uprising, the oligarchy decided to found a naval wing separate from the already existent Royal Umbarim Navy: The Corsairs of Umbar. Comprised of native tribesmen and dock workers, the Corsairs became known to all the enemies of Umbar, raiding the coastlines of Gondor with impunity. A genius move it was, in retrospect, for the oligarchs to execute - to destroy internal strife and expand the city's already mighty naval arm...a stroke of utter genius it was.

After a few centuries, however, the Corsairs were repelled by the Gondorian forces close to pellenor. As the Gondorians achieved victory, a second contingency fleet of Corsairs were poised to raid the coast. Seeing the Gondorians destroy the first fleet, they felt discouraged to raid the coast of Gondor at risk of being defeated by a larger Gondorian naval armada. Thus, Admiral Azrazin developed a new plan - to take Umbar proper, launch a coup and take the city from within and without! They would be kings...

And that they did. On the turn of the fourth age, the preparations made ready. Red sails were spotted on the horizon, seen all the way from Umbar's mighty seawalls. After a lengthy siege, the unpopular oligarchs were overthrown, and a native haradric corsair government developed - a Kingdom of Umbar, separate from the savage southrons to their east and south, economically and politically wealthy. The corsairs pushed for aggressive expansion by land and sea, capturing more lands by the coast and pushing the coastling tribes out of the eastern frontier. Wealth was distributed more evenly amongst the citizens of Umbar, with the natives recieving fair representation. All looked well for the fledgeling Kingdom of Umbar, and it remained so for 200 years.
