Eldarion (Quenya "Son of Elves") was the only recorded son of Arwen and Aragorn. He was born in the Fourth Age, and became King of the Reunited Kingdom of Gondor and Arnor after his father died. He was also recorded to have several sisters.

105 years after the fall of the Dark Tower, he encountered a renewal of Morgoth-worship during his reign.

Etymology

His name in Quenya means 'Scion of Eldar'. In Letter 338, J.R.R. Tolkien spelled this name Eldaron, this is probably a typographic error.
