Template:Royalty infobox Aragost (T.A. 2431 - 2588 , died aged 157) was the eighth Chieftain of the Dúnedain, succeeding hi father, Arahad I, when he died in 2523.

As far as we know, 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
