Aravir was the fourth of the Chieftains of the Dúnedain. He was raised by Elrond in Rivendell while his father Aranuir dwelt in the wild.

At his father's death in 2247 T.A., Aranuir in turn became the Chieftain of the Dúnedain. During his rule the Watchful Peace slowly came to an end as Sauron returned to the north-west of Middle-earth, although his presence remained unknown.

Aravir died in 2319 and was followed by his son Aragorn I (Not to be confused with Aragorn II who later becomes Aragorn Elessar in The Lord of the Rings.
