40 Little-Known Facts About Aragorn from Lord of the Rings
His Name Means Revered King
Although Aragorn spent much of his life denying his place on the throne, his name didn’t help much. Aragorn means “revered king,” so it seems only natural that Aragorn would eventually ascend to the throne. Those lofty expectations came from his parents and they must have been a lot to live up to.
Fortunately, Aragorn was just the kind of man who could do it. He was a reluctant leader, and those are often the best kind. He didn’t want power, it was simply thrust upon him. Aragorn was a good man and a great king. He earned the name he was given.
