Aravorn

Revision as of 18:57, 15 January 2007 by Mith (Talk | contribs)

Template:Royalty infobox Aravorn (T.A. 2497 - 2654, died aged 157) was the ninth Chieftain of the Dúnedain, succeeding his father, Aragost, when he died in 2588.

Aravorn's rule seems to be uneventful - although small fights with orcs and wolves likely happened - as the enemy centred a lot of its attacks on the newly-formed Rohan.

Aravorn died in 2654, after having ruled as chieftain for 66 years, and was succeeded by his don, Arahad II
