Ulbar was a Man of Númenór.


Ulbar shepherd of Emerië turned mariner and father of Îbal. He originally tended sheep on a farm in Emerië that was owned by Hallatan of Hyarastorni. He married and woman and had one son, Îbal. When he heard of the formation of the Guild of Venturers by Aldarion, he joined it and became a crewman on the Hirilondë and sailed with him to and from Middle-earth and other lands as well. He was gone for many years.

When Ulbar returned to Númenor, he rode with Aldarion and Henderch to Emerië when Aldarion went to visit his wife. Ulbar did not stay and instead by his lord's leave went home to his house in Hyarastorni where his family and friends were awaiting his return. During a celebration of Ulbar's return, Aldarion came to the house desiring rest during which time he spoke to Ulbar's son Îbal about seafaring and gave a red jewel on a band of gold to his wife, as a reward for Ulbar's six years of service to him.

Ulbar greatly respected Aldarion calling him the "The Great Captain".[1]
