Revision as of 14:38, 15 August 2006 by Hyarion (Talk | contribs)

Arahad II (Sindarin) was the tenth of the Chieftains of the Dúnedain.

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

Arahad was named for his grandfather, Arahad I, and became the Chieftain of the Dúnedain in 2654 at the death of his father.

During his rule the Hobbits of the Shire prospered under the protection by the Rangers, and the first pipe-weed was planted in the Shire's Southfarthing.

In the Shire Isengrim Took II became the Thain and begun digging the Great Smials.

Arahad died in 2719, and was followed by his son Arassuil.
