Arathorn I was the twelth Chieftain of the Dúnedain.
Two etymologies for "Arathorn" exist. The first, written shortly after the publication of The Lord of the Rings, gave "Steadfast King" (from aran "king" and thorn "steadfast"). A later etymology gave the meaning of the name as "Eagle King" (from aran "king" and thoron "eagle").
