The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen was a Gondorian tale written in the early Fourth Age. It told the story of the romance of Aragorn and Arwen from the days before Aragorn's birth until Arwen's despair at his loss.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The Tale was written in Gondor by Barahir, the grandson of Prince Faramir of Ithilien. It was inserted into a copy of the Thain's Book by Findegil, but in a shortened form - the passages relating to the War of the Ring were removed to avoid repeating the main tale of that Book.[2]
