Aragost

Revision as of 18:03, 11 June 2006 by Hyarion (Talk | contribs)

Aragost (S. 'Lord of the Fortress'; ost = fortress) was the eighth of the Chieftains of the Dúnedain.

Like his forefathers, he was raised by Elrond in Rivendell while his father Arahad I dwelt in the wild.

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.

He died in 2588, and was followed by his son Aravorn.
