40 Little-Known Facts About Aragorn from Lord of the Rings
Elrond Hid Arwen from Aragorn
Arwen and Aragorn are soulmates. Their relationship is one of the emotional cores of the entire saga. It seems that Elrond may have foreseen the relationship between them. That’s why he chose to keep them apart from one another for as long as possible. Elrond never approved of the relationship, in large part because Arwen was immortal and Aragorn was not.
Of course, Elrond couldn’t keep them apart forever. They met and fell in love almost immediately thereafter. Arwen knew a good man when she saw one. Aragorn may not have been a childhood friend of Arwen, but that hardly mattered in the end.
