When the North Kingdom of the Dúnedain was destroyed by the Witch-king of Angmar in TA 1974, the heirs to this kingdom were then called Dúnedain chieftains and there were sixteen of them. There is little known about Aragorn I, other than the fact that he was the fifth chieftain and was slain by wolves in Eriador in TA 2327. Aragorn II, later Elessar, first king of the Reunited Kingdom, was named after his forefather.
He served as chieftain for only eight years and was succeeded by his son Araglas.
