Araglas (T.A. 2296[1] - 2455,[2] died aged 159) was the sixth Chieftain of the Dúnedain, following his father, Aragorn I, when he was killed by wolves in 2327.

History

Araglas' rule was uneventful. He died in 2455 - after having ruled for 128 years - and was followed by his son, Arahad I.[2]

Etymology

Araglas's name is Sindarin. It presumably means "Royal Joy", coming from the prefix ara-, "king", and glass, "joy".
