Early yearsEdit

Born on March 1, TA 2915, Aragorn was a descendant of Elros Tar-Minyatur. His ancestor Arvedui was wedded to Fíriel, who bore their son Aranarth, making Aragorn the last descendant of Anárion as well. When Aragorn was two years old, his father was slain when an Orc arrow pierced his eye. As was the tradition of his people, Aragorn was fostered in Rivendell by his mother Gilraen and Lord Elrond as if he was his own son. By Elrond's order, his identity was kept secret, as he feared he would be slain like his father and grandfather. Aragorn was named Estel ("Hope") instead. During his life in Rivendell, he accompanied the sons of Elrond, Elrohir and Elladan, on their journeys.

After turning five, his mother left him to be taken care of in Rivendell when she returned to her people in Eriador and passed away from a terrible illness before she could return to visit her son. Aragorn was devastated of her mother's death after her body was brought to Rivendell and would be buried there. revealed to "Estel" his true name and ancestry when he returned from a journey with Elrohir and Elladan in TA 2935, when Aragorn was twenty years old; as part of this revelation, he delivered to him the heirlooms of his House: the shards of Narsil and the Ring of Barahir. Later, Aragorn met and fell in love with Arwen, daughter of Elrond, who had newly returned from Lothlórien.

Ranger of the NorthEdit

Estel took up his proper name as Aragorn, sixteenth of the Chieftain of the Dúnedain, and after he took leave of Elrond he went into The Wild and became known as Strider. After turning twenty-six in TA 2941, Aragorn first met Legolas Greenleaf, son of Thranduil, an elven prince who left his father and his people after the Battle of Seven Armies ended. He revealed his name to him, and the two would develop a good friendship over the years. In TA 2953, he was not present in Rivendell for the last meeting of the White Council. Three years later, Aragorn met Gandalf the Grey, and they became great friends. At Gandalf's advice, Aragorn started to become interested in the Shire, homeland of the Hobbits.
