Ar-Pharazôn began building a huge fleet to attack Valinor in 3310 S.A. and break the Ban of the Valar, landing in the Undying Lands in 3319 S.A. In retribution, the Valar sank Ar-Pharazôn, his fleet, and all of Númenor beneath the ocean.
Ar-Pharazôn was married to his cousin, Míriel (or Ar-Zimraphel), who was the daughter of King Tar-Palantir, whom Ar-Pharazôn succeeded when he took the throne from his wife. Their marriage was actually a violation of the Númenórean law, but because he was a powerful man none dared oppose him. His father was Gimilkhâd, Tar-Palantir's younger brother.
