Aragost

Revision as of 02:24, 29 May 2008 by Hyarion (Talk | contribs)

Template:Royalty infobox 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.

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
