40 Little-Known Facts About Aragorn from Lord of the Rings
Elrond Had One Condition for Arwen and Aragorn’s Marriage
Although Elrond was not hugely fond of the relationship between Arwen and Aragorn, he eventually consented to their marriage. As part of his consent, though, Elrond made one final request: Aragorn would have to become king of Gondor and Arnor. After all, what’s the point in marrying a mortal if he’s not also a king?
Of course, Aragorn didn’t just become king to please his father. He did it to serve the people that he ruled over, and protect them from evil forces like Sauron. Aragorn was a perfect fit for the role because of his innate goodness. He’s also pretty good with a sword.
