Envinyatar, the Renewer, was a title claimed by Aragorn after the Battle of the Pelennor Fields. It referred to the prophecy - soon to be fulfilled - that he would renew the hope of the Dúnedain by reuniting the Two Kingdoms.[1]

[edit] Etymology

Helge Fauskanger has suggested that Envinyatar, which literally menas "Renewer",[2] is formed from the unattested Quenya verb envinyata- ("renew") + agentive ending -r.[3]
