Arathorn I (T.A. 2784[1] - 2848,[2] age 155) was the twelth Chieftain of the Dúnedain.

[edit] History

In the days of his father, Arassuil, the Orcs of the Misty Mountains emerged again. Arathorn succeeded Arassuil, on his death in 2784. Arathorn himself was killed violently[note 1] in 2848; he was succeeded by his son, Argonui.[2]

[edit] Etymology

The etymology of Arathorn is uncertain. See Arathorn II for discussion.

Notes

  1. This is deduced from the dagger symbol (†) next to his death date in the Appendix A, although the narrative doesn't mention anything about his life; it's possible he was killed by Orcs, like others of his line.
