40 Little-Known Facts About Aragorn from Lord of the Rings
Aragorn and Gandalf Have Known Each Other Since He Was 25
Aragorn has already led a pretty long life when we meet him in Lord of the Rings. That means that, for the most part, he has some familiarity with the rest of the fellowship before they set off on their quest. In Gandalf’s case, Aragorn first met him when he was 25.
It’s not totally clear how the two first met, but they ended up striking a long-time bond. Although Frodo is by far the most evidently grief-stricken when Gandalf falls, Aragorn also looks pained. That pain comes from a lifetime of knowing and loving the benevolent old wizard, and relying on him for wisdom.
