Arveleg (T.A. 1633[1] - 1813,[2] died aged 180) was the twelth king of Arthedain, and came to throne upon the death of his father, Arvegil, in T.A. 1743.

[edit] History

Arveleg died in 1813, after having ruled for seventy years, and was succeeded by his son, Araval.[2]

[edit] Etymology

Arveleg's name is Sindarin for "Mighty King" from ar meaning "royal", and beleg (becoming lenited to veleg) meaning "mighty, strong". It is likely, however, that he was simply named after his great-great-grandfather, Arveleg I.
