Argeleb I (T.A. 1226[1] - 1356,[2] died aged 130) was the seventh king of Arthedain, succeeding his father, Malvegil, upon his death in 1349.

History

By the time Argeleb came to power, the line of kings had failed in the kingdoms of Cardolan and Rhudaur, so Argeleb claimed sovereignty over all of Arnor[3] (taking the royal prefix ar(a)- as a token of this[4]). He was thus not only the seventh King of Arthedain, but also the seventeenth King of Arnor. Cardolan accepted this rule, but by then Rhudaur had fallen under the control of Angmar, and resisted his claim. In response, Argeleb fortified the hills, but he was killed in T.A. 1356 fighting evil men from Rhudaur and Angmar.[3]

It was about this time that the remaining Stoors in the Angle left the area due to hostile nature of Rhudaur. They either returned to Wilderland or went westwards like other hobbits.[5]

Argeleb ruled for only seven years, and was succeeded by his son, Arveleg I, upon his death in T.A. 1356.[2]

Etymology

Argeleb's name is Sindarin for "Silver King" from ar meaning "royal", and celeb (becoming lenited to geleb) meaning "silver".
