The Lord Of The Rings
Aragorn II a.k.a. Strider, Elessar Telcontal, Dunadan, born in T.A. 2931, is a member of the Fellowship of the Ring. At the age of two after his father’s death he was taken into the care of Elrond in Rivendell. He doesn’t know his real name and the elves call him Estel, which means “hope” in Sindarin. Aragorn is undoubtedly the last hope to restore the House of Isildur. His renowned ancestor cut Sauron’s finger together with the Ring off in 3441. Since Elendil, Isildur’s father, was the 1st king of Gondor and Arnor, Aragorn, in his turn, is an heir-at-law to the throne. However, for the time being, no one suspected that, and Stewards ruled the Kingdom.At the age of 20 Aragorn learned the truth about his origin and Elrond gave him the heirloom of the Heirs of Isildur – Elendir’s broken sword and the Ring of Barahir. After that he began his journey to Wilderland. Since then he had been fighting with Sauron’s servants for 70 years and with a war-cry “Elendil” put the enemy to flight. His long journey through the forests of Middle-earth taught Aragorn to be unnoticeable and calm even in the most dangerous situations.During his journeys Aragorn was not only the Head of the Rangers of the North and ruled Gondor but also served the King of Rohan and the Steward of Gondor. In 2980 he led the Umbar Campaign and most of the Corsairs’ ships were destroyed. But before that, in 2959, Aragorn befriended Gandalf.
Belonging to the Dunadan’s, Aragorn looks quite young for his age. It is known that Numenorean’s descendents lived about 150-200 years. Such people were known for their grandeur and nobility.
In 3017 Aragorn launched a successful campaign to catch Gollum. It was not that easy to accomplish. But for Gandalf he could do anything despite its being dangerous and perilous. Aragorn’s selflessness also showed in his willingness to help Frodo and the other three hobbits to get to Rivendell and also in his joining the Fellowship.
My favorite character is:Aragorn - he is the best fighter ever to live.
