He ruled for 88 years until his death.
"This name he took, for in his youth he was great captain, and won wide lands along the coasts of Middle-earth. Thus he kindled the hate of Sauron, who nonetheless withdrew, and built his power in the East, far from the shores, biding his time. In the days of Tar-Calmacil the name of King was first spoken in Adûnaic; and by the King's Men he was called Ar-Belzagar."
