365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 331: King's Men

The King’s Men made up the majority of Númenoreans, being those who opposed the Ban of the Valar and had, as a result, become estranged from the Eldar. Arising during the reign of Tar-Ancalimon, they established dominions in the south; their greatest stronghold being Umbar. They were easily corrupted by Sauron, and as a result turned to tyranny and Darkness. Their descendants were the Black Númenoreans (among them nine princes who, after each receiving a Ring of Power from Sauron, were enslaved forever as Ringwraiths).
