Arahad II was the tenth Chieftain of the Dúnedain.
Like his forefathers, he was raised by Elrond in Rivendell while his father Aravorn dwelt in the wild. Arahad was named for his great grandfather, Arahad I, and became the Chieftain of the Dúnedain in TA 2654 at the death of his father. During his rule the Hobbits of the Shire prospered under the protection of the Rangers, and the first pipe-weed was planted in the Shire's Southfarthing. In the Shire, Isengrim II became the Thain and began digging the Great Smials. Arahad died in TA 2719 after serving as chieftain for sixty-five years, and was followed by his son Arassuil.
