</table></div>""======The Second Corsair War======

**The Second Corsair War** (1633-1638) was a series of armed conflicts between [[Gondor]], [[Umbar]] and the //Castamirioni League//. It was one of the wars between the dynasty of Eldacar and the descendants of Castamir that took place after the Kin-strife. In Umbar they are called the "Civil Wars", in Gondor, "the Corsair Wars".

The second war was characterized by small skirmishes and corsair strikes on Gondor's coasts. There were only two major battles. Angamaitë and Sangahyando, great-grandsons of Castamir, launched the **[[PelargirRaid Great Raid]]** in 1634 upon southern Gondor, razing [[Pelargir]] and destroying many of the realm's coastal fortifications. Sangahyando was fatally wounded during the raid and died two years later in Umbar. His young son [[Sangahyandion]] took over his father's fleet and, after gathering additional volunteers forces from Haruzan, conquered [[GobelMirlond Gobel Mírlond]] and southern Harondor in 1637-1639 while the Gondorian army was decimated by the Great Plague.

Wearied of plague, blockades and raids, and now under threat of a continued advance on Gondor proper and a scheme to restore his uncle Vinyaran as ruler, king [[Tarondor]] signed a treaty ending hostilities on June 10, 1638. Although the [[GovadanGondorim Council of Gondor]] did not approve the treaty until the following year, this effectively ended the Second Corsair War. Tarondor agreed to pay ransom of sixty thousand gold crowns for Gondorian prisoners, but the promised monies were never transferred to Umbar, which provoked the [[ThirdCorsairWar Third Corsair War]].
