As far as we know, Aragost's rule was uneventful due to the enemy's forces being concentrated in Gondor and Rhovanion. Aragost died in 2588 - after having ruled for 65 years - and was followed by his son, Aravorn
There are two possible etymologies for Aragost's name:
- Sindarin for "Lord of the Fortress", from the prefix ara- meaning "lord, royal", and ost meaning "fortress".
- Sindarin for "Royal Dread", from the prefix ara- meaning "royal", and gost meaning "dread".
