Aravorn was the ninth of the Chieftain of the Dúnedain.

BiographyEdit

Like his forefathers, he was raised by Elrond Half-elven in Rivendell. Aravorn became the Chieftain of the Dúnedain in the year TA 2588 at the death of his father. During Aravorn's rule, the orc and wolf attacks continued as the strength of the Dark Lord Sauron slowly began to increase. Aravorn died in the year TA 2654 after serving as chieftain for sixty-six years, and was followed by his son Arahad II.[2]

EtymologyEdit

The name Aravorn has unclear origins. If it were to be Sindarin, it may have come from the words ara, meaning 'king', and morn, meaning 'black', which would give the meaning "black king" to his name. If it were from Quenya, his name could have come from the words ara or aran, which both mean 'noble' or 'king', and vórë, meaning 'lasting' or 'enduring'. This would give the meaning "noble endurance" or perhaps "lasting nobility" (alluding to the line of Isildur).[3]
