Arahad II (T.A. 2654[1] - 2719,[2] died aged 156) was the tenth Chieftain of the Dúnedain, following his father, Aravorn, when he died in 2654.

[edit] History

During his chieftainship, the hobbits of the Shire flourished under the protection of the Rangers, with Tobold Hornblower planting the first pipe-weed in the Southfarthing, and the tenth Thain, Isengrim Took II, started digging the Great Smials.[3]

Arahad died in 2719, after having ruled for 65 years, and was followed by his son, Arassuil.[2]

[edit] Etymology

The etymology of Arahad's name is uncertain, but it likely he was named after his great-grandfather, Arahad I. For a discussion on the meaning of the name, see Arahad I - Etymology.
