Arahael (T.A. 2012[1] - 2177,[2] died aged 165) was the second Chieftain of the Dúnedain, succeeding his father, Aranarth, when he died in 2106.

[edit] History

Arahael was raised by Elrond in Rivendell (as were all his descendants) while his father protected Eriador from the evils of the wild with the help of other Rangers.

Arahael's reign was uneventful (as far as we know), due to the secretive (and therefore now little-known) nature of the Dúnedain, and the Watchful Peace which there was at that time. It is likely that the Rangers fought minor battles and skirmishes against orcs in order to keep the region safe.[3]

Arahael died in 2177, having been Chieftain for 65 years, and was followed by his son, Aranuir.[2]

[edit] Etymology

Arahael's name is Sindarin and probably means "Wise King", coming from the prefix ara- meaning "king", and sael (becoming mutated to hael) meaning "wise".
