Aragost (T.A. 2431 - T.A. 2588) was the eighth Chieftain of the Dúnedain, succeeding his father, Arahad I, when he died in Third Age 2523.

History

Aragost's rule was uneventful due to the enemy's forces being concentrated in Gondor and Rhovanion. Aragost died in 2588 - after having ruled for 65 years - and was followed by his son, Aravorn.

Etymology

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