'''Arathorn II''' ([[Sindarin|S]]. 'Tree of All Lords') was the son of Chieftain [[Arador]] of the [[Dúnedain]], and a descendant through many generations of [[Isildur]] himself. Of Arathorn's early life, little is known. He first appears in annals at the age of fifty-six, seeking the hand of [[Gilraen]] as his wife. [[Gilraen]] at that time was just twenty-two years old, and though the wedding was at first opposed by her father [[Dírhael]], she became Arathorn's wife.

Arathorn II (T.A. 2873 - 2933, died aged 60) was the fifteenth Chieftain of the Dúnedain and succeeded his father, Arador, when he was killed by trolls in 2930. Arathorn married Gilraen and their son was Aragorn II, High King of the Reunited Kingdom.

Arathorn first appears in the annals at the age of fifty-six, in 2929, seeking the Gilraen as his wife. Gilraen was only twenty-two, so her father, Dírhael, opposed the marriage; also, he said,

"Arathorn is stern man of full age, and will be chieftain sooner than men looked for; yet my heart forbodes he will be short-lived."
Appendix A, The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

Yet Ivorwen, Gilraen's mother, was gifted with foresight and pereived that hope would be born from their marriage for the people of the Dúnedain. Thus, Gilraen and Arathorn married.

The next year, 2930, Arador, Arathorn's father, was slain by trolls so Arathorn became Chieftain. In 2931 Gilraen bore him a son, who they named Aragorn, however, Aragorn would not know his father. In 2933, Arathorn went hunting orcs, and was shot through the eye and killed, so Gilraen took their son to Rivendell to be fostered by Elrond.

Arathorn II served as Chieftain of the Dúnedain for just three years. He was succeeded by his only son, who would become Chieftain Aragorn II, and in time King Elessar of the Reunited Kingdom of the Dúnedain.
