Araval (T.A. 1711 - 1891, died aged 180) was thirteenth king of Arthedain, coming to the throne in 1813 after the death of his father, Arveleg II.

Contents

History

When Araval came to the throne Arthedain had been at war with Angmar for 400 years, and the Dúnedain had done very little to prevent the power of this old enemy spreading.

Araval, in coalition with the elves of Lindon and Rivendell, went to battle with the forces of Angmar in 1851 and returned victorious. After this victory, Araval attempted to re-occupy Cardolan, but the evil wights terrified anyone who attempted to dwell there.

Unfortunately, Araval's victory was of no avail in the long term: under Araphant, Araval's son, Angmar recovers and continues its attacks on Arnor; and under Arvedui, Araval's grandson, Angmar finally defeats Arthedain, laying Arnor to waste and scattering the remnants of the Dúnedain.

Araval ruled Arthedain for seventy-eight years, and was succeeded by his son Araphant upon his death in 1891.

Etymology

There are two suggested etymologies for Araval's name:

  1. Sindarin for "Lord of Power" from ara- meaning "royal, king", and bal meaning "power".
  2. Sindarin for "Golden King" or "King of Gold" from ara- meaning "royal, king", and mal (becoming lenited to val) meaning "gold".
