Arassuil (T.A. 2719[1] - 2784,[2] died aged 156) was the eleventh Chieftain of the Dúnedain, succeeding his father, Arahad II, when he died in 2719.

History

During his chieftainship the Orcs of the Misty Mountains became more bold, daring to invade Eriador. The Rangers fought many battles trying to hold them back,[3] but one party of Orcs managed to reach the Shire, where they were fought off by a party of brave Hobbits under Bandobras "Bullroarer" Took in 2747 at the Battle of Greenfields.[4]

Also during this time, in 2758, the Long Winter arrived. Many lives were lost, and Gandalf and the Rangers had to help the Hobbits of the Shire survive.[4]

After having been chieftain for 65 years, Arassuil died in 2784. He was succeeded by his son, Arathorn I.[2]

Etymology

Arassuil's name is Sindarin, however, the etymology of it is a bit uncertain. It could be from aran meaning "king", and suil meaning "greeting".
