40 Little-Known Facts About Aragorn from Lord of the Rings
He Was a Dúnedain Ranger
During the years when Aragorn wandered through Middle Earth, he became a Dúnedain ranger. His father was a part of the Dúnedain, so Aragorn knew that he would be welcome there. He became the 16th Chieftan of the Dúnedain and helped them fight off Orcs.
Aragorn’s skill with a sword and with a bow comes in part from his time with the Dúnedain. It’s also where he learned how to battle against the armies of Mordor, which is a skill he ended up needing. The fight against Mordor is ultimately what defines Aragorn’s life, so his time with the Dúnedain is hugely important.
