He became the [[Chieftain of the Dúnedain]] in 2523 at the death of his father. His rule was an uneventful one, as the attention of the enemy was focussed on [[Gondor]], where the [[Éothéod]] had settled the new realm of [[Rohan]].

Aragost's name is never explained but it could mean [[Sindarin]] for "Royal Dread", from the prefix ''[[ar|ara-]]'' meaning "royal", and ''gost'' meaning "dread".
