Template:Royalty infobox Aranuir (T.A. 2084 - 2247, died aged 165) was the third Chieftains of the Dúnedain, following the death of his father, Arahael, in 2177.

As far as we know, Aranuir's rule was uneventful. Aranuir died in 2247, after having been chieftain for seventy years, and was followed by his son, Aravir.
