During his lifetime, the father of Arveleg, Argeleb son of [[Malvegil]], was the only King in Arnor that still had [[Isildur]]'s heritage. As such, he claimed lordship over [[Rhudaur]] and [[Cardolan]]. The men of Rhudaur resisted this claim, and a captain of the [[Hill-men]] of that land formed a secret alliance with Argeleb's enemy, the [[Witch-king]] of [[Angmar]]. Thus Arveleg grew up in an era of War. The armies of [[Angmar]] and Rhudaur laid siege to the [[Weather Hills]], and Argeleb fell. And so, in {{TA|1356}}, Arveleg became the eighth King of Arthedain.

With the help of the Dúnedain of Cardolan and the [[Elves of Lindon]], Arveleg managed to drive out the enemies from the Weather Hills. Arthedain and Cardolan kept a guarded border along the Weather Hills, the [[East Road]] and the lower [[Hoarwell]]. This defense was apparently effective, as Angmar shifted its attention to [[Rivendell]] instead.

With the help of the Dúnedain of Cardolan and the [[Elves of Lindon]], Arveleg managed to drive out the enemies from the Weather Hills. Arthedain and Cardolan kept a guarded border along the Weather Hills, the [[Great East Road]] and the lower [[Hoarwell]]. This defense was apparently effective, as Angmar shifted its attention to [[Rivendell]] instead.  
  
 
In {{TA|1409}}, the armies of Angmar and Rhudaur crossed the Hoarwell, occupied Cardolan, and closed in on Weathertop. In a bloody [[Fall of Amon Sûl|battle]], both Arveleg and the last prince of Cardolan were slain. The [[Amon Sûl-stone|palantír]] of Amon Sûl could be saved, however, and was brought to the capital of Arthedain, [[Fornost Erain|Fornost]].
