Cultural Information and History
A Black Numenorean by Jan Pospisil
This truly evil and foolish race of men originated in Numenor. They lived in the South, where they had their own kingdom. The Black Numenoreans were friendly with the Northern Numenoreans. However, they were seduced by Sauron and became very evil. While the Haradrim were mislead, the Black Numenoreans were really evil. They escaped the destruction of Numenor and settled in Umbar, where they began building ships and became known as the "Corsairs of Umbar." They made enemies with Gondor and often attacked it. They constructed a city called "City of Corsairs," but they mainly lived at sea. The Corsairs finally gave in and stopped fighting for evil after their loss at Pellenor Fields.
