Arador

Revision as of 22:29, 15 January 2007 by Mith (Talk | contribs)

Template:Royalty infobox Arador (T.A. 2820 - 2930, died aged 110) was the fourteenth Chieftain of the Dúnedain, succeeding his father, Argonui, when he died in 2912.

As far as we know, Arador's rule was uneventful except for the fact he was captured and killed by Hill-trolls north of Rivendell (possibly the same trolls Thorin and Company encounted in Trollshaws). He was followed by his young son, Arathorn II, in 2930.
