The Aratar (Sindarin for 'exalted') or the High Ones of Arda were the eight greatest of the Valar.

In descending order of power the Aratar were Manwë, Varda, Ulmo, Yavanna, Aulë, Mandos, Nienna, and Oromë. Melkor had been the most powerful of all, but was removed from the order upon his rebellion.

Other namesEdit

The Aratar were also referred to as the Eight, the Holy Ones of Arda, and the Máhani.
