Aragost (T.A. 2431[1] - 2588[2], age 157) was the eighth Chieftain of the Dúnedain, succeeding his father, Arahad I, when he died in 2523.

[edit] History

Aragost's rule was uneventful due to the enemy's forces being concentrated against Gondor and Rhovanion. Aragost died in 2588 - after having ruled for 65 years - and was followed by his son, Aravorn.[2]

[edit] Etymology

Aragost's name is never explained but it could mean Sindarin for "Royal Dread", from the prefix ara- meaning "royal", and gost meaning "dread".
