Originally known as Ciryaher, he was born in the year TA 899 and began his reign reorganizing Gondor's armies and in TA 1050 he openly declared war on the Haradrim and defeated them. The Haradrim were forced to recognize him as their lord and king. After this victory he called himself Hyarmendacil, meaning South-victor.
Under his reign Gondor reached its greatest extent and power. The passes of Mordor were well guarded, so evil found no chance in Hyarmendacil's reign. No one dared to contest his power and Gondor was at peace for the rest of his long reign of 134 years.
