Description:
Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weatherbeaten man...smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face [...]

[He] threw back his hood, showing a shaggy head of dark hair flecked with grey, and in a pale stern face a pair of keen grey eyes.

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 9, At the Sign of the Prancing Pony

"Well, I have rather a rascally look, have I not?"

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 10, Strider

The grey figure of the man, Aragorn son of Arathorn, was tall, and stern as stone, his hand upon the hilt of his sword; he looked as if some king out of the mists of the sea had stepped upon the shores of lesser men.

The Two Towers, LoTR Book 3, Ch 5, The White Rider

His ways were hard and long, and he became somewhat grim to look upon, unless he chanced to smile...
His face was sad and stern because of the doom that was laid on him, and yet hope dwelt ever in the depths of his heart, from which mirth would arise at times like a spring from a rock.

Born — 1 March 2931

2931 Aragorn son of Arathorn II born on March 1st.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

Moves to Rivendell — age 2 — 2933

2933 Arathorn II slain. Gilraen takes Aragorn to Imladris. Elrond receives him as foster-son and gives him the name Estel (Hope); his ancestry is concealed.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

The next year Gilraen bore [Arathorn] a son, and he was called Aragorn. But Aragorn was only two years old when Arathorn went riding against the Orcs with the sons of Elrond, and he was slain by an orc-arrow that pierced his eye; and so he proved indeed shortlived for one of his race, being but sixty years old when he fell.

Then Aragorn, being now the Heir of Isildur, was taken with his mother to dwell in the house of Elrond; and Elrond took the place of his father and came to love him as a son of his own. But he was called Estel, that is "Hope", and his true name and lineage were kept secret at the bidding of Elrond […].

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

Performs "great deeds", learns identity — age 19 to 20 — 2951 (winter/spring/summer)

2951 [...] Elrond reveals to 'Estel' his true name and ancestry, and delivers to him the shards of Narsil.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

But when Estel was only twenty years of age, it chanced that he returned to Rivendell after great deeds in the company of the sons of Elrond; and Elrond looked at him and was pleased, for he saw that he was fair and noble and was early come to manhood, though he would yet become greater in body and in mind. That day therefore Elrond called him by his true name, and told him who he was and whose son; and he delivered to him the heirlooms of his house.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

Meets Arwen — age 20 — 2951 (spring/summer)

2951 [...] Arwen, newly returned from Lórien, meets Aragorn in the woods of Imladris.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

‘But when Estel was only twenty years of age, it chanced that he returned to Rivendell after great deeds in the company of the sons of Elrond […] That day therefore Elrond called him by his true name […] The next day at the hour of sunset Aragorn walked alone in the woods, and his heart was high within him; and he sang, for he was full of hope and the world was fair. And suddenly even as he sang he saw a maiden walking on a greensward among the white stems of the birches […] She laughed merrily and said: "Then we are akin from afar. For I am Arwen Elrond's daughter, and am named also Undómiel."

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

Then Aragorn was abashed, for he saw the elven-light in her eyes and the wisdom of many days; yet from that hour he loved Arwen Undómiel daughter of Elrond.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

In the days that followed Aragorn fell silent, and his mother perceived that some strange thing had befallen him; and at last he yielded to her questions and told her of the meeting in the twilight of the trees.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

Elrond saw many things and read many hearts. One day, therefore, before the fall of the year he called Aragorn to his chamber, and he said: […] "You shall neither have wife, nor bind any woman to you in troth, until your time comes and you are found worthy of it." […] He sighed, and after a while, looking gravely upon the young man, he said again: "The years will bring what they will. We will speak no more of this until many have passed." […] Then Aragorn took leave lovingly of Elrond; and the next day he said farewell to his mother, and to the house of Elrond, and to Arwen, and he went out into the wild.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

[Note on dating of time of year: There is no precise information on what time of year it was when Aragorn first saw Arwen or how long he stayed in Rivendell after he met her, but the limits can be roughly determined. He is twenty at the time of the meeting, so it has to be after 1 March, but he speaks to Elrond and leaves Rivendell "before the fall of the year". Gilraen notices that "some strange thing had befallen him" when in "the days that followed [the meeting] Aragorn fell silent". How much time elapsed between Gilraen noticing and Elrond noticing is not stated.]

Makes first foray into Wild — age 20 — 2951 (late summer/fall)

2951 [...] Aragorn goes out into the Wild.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

'But Elrond saw many things and read many hearts. One day, therefore, before the fall of the year he called Aragorn to his chamber […] Then Aragorn took leave lovingly of Elrond; and the next day he said farewell to his mother, and to the house of Elrond, and to Arwen, and he went out into the wild.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

Meets Gandalf — age 25 — 2956

2956 Aragorn meets Gandalf and their friendship begins.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

For nearly thirty years he laboured in the cause against Sauron; and he became a friend of Gandalf the Wise, from whom he gained much wisdom.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

Serves (as Thorongil) in Rohan and Gondor — age 26 to 49 — 2957 to 2980

2957-80 Aragorn undertakes his great journeys and errantries. As Thorongil he serves in disguise both Thengel of Rohan and Ecthelion II of Gondor.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

For he went in many guises, and won renown under many names. He rode in the host of the Rohirrim, and fought for the Lord of Gondor by land and by sea

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

Destroys Corsair fleet — age 48 or 49 — 2980 (winter)

Thorongil often counselled Ecthelion that the strength of the rebels in Umbar was a great peril to Gondor, and a threat to the fiefs of the south that would prove deadly, if Sauron moved to open war. At last he got leave of the Steward and gathered a small fleet, and he came to Umbar unlooked-for by night, and there burned a great part of the ships of the Corsairs. He himself overthrew the Captain of the Haven in battle upon the quays, and then he withdrew his fleet with small loss. But when they came back to Pelargir, to men's grief and wonder, he would not return to Minas Tirith, where great honour awaited him.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Gondor and the Heirs of Anárion: The Stewards

There was dismay in the City at the departure of Thorongil, and to all men it seemed a great loss, unless it were to "Denethor, the son of Ecthelion, a man now ripe for the Stewardship, to which after four years he succeeded on the death of his father.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Gondor and the Heirs of Anárion: The Stewards

When Denethor became Steward (2984) he proved a masterful lord, holding the rule of all things in his own hand.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Gondor and the Heirs of Anárion: The Stewards

It came to pass that when Aragorn was nine and forty years of age he returned from perils on the dark confines of Mordor, where Sauron now dwelt again and was busy with evil. He was weary and he wished to go back to Rivendell and rest there for a while ere he journeyed into the far countries; and on his way he came to the borders of Lórien and was admitted to the hidden land by the Lady Galadriel.

He did not know it, but Arwen Undómiel was also there […] he came walking towards her under the trees of Caras Galadhon laden with flowers of gold […]

Then for a season they wandered together in the glades of Lothlórien […] And on the evening of Midsummer […] they plighted their troth….

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

[Legolas describes the seasonal pattern of mallorn trees:] There are no trees like the trees of that land. For in the autumn their leaves fall not, but turn to gold. Not till the spring comes and the new green opens do they fall, and then the boughs are laden with yellow flowers; and the floor of the wood is golden, and golden is the roof, and its pillars are of silver, for the bark of the trees is smooth and grey.

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 2, Ch 6, Lothlórien

[On the day after the Fellowship’s arrival in Lothlórien, dated 15 February 3019 in The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age:] the inner [circle] were mallorn-trees of great height, still arrayed in pale gold

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 2, Ch 6, Lothlórien

[Note on dating: this act is not listed in The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age but the year can deduced by taking the second and third quotations together and subtracting four years from the date given in the third quotation. Aragorn’s age has been given as 48/49 because it must have been very early in the year when Aragorn destroyed the Corsair fleet, and likely to be before his 49th birthday on 1 March, in order for him to have sufficient time to experience the "perils" on the border of Mordor and spend "a season" with Arwen between them meeting again and plighting their troth on "the evening of Midsummer".]

Undertakes perils on the borders of Mordor — age 49 — 2980 (winter/spring)

It came to pass that when Aragorn was nine and forty years of age he returned from perils on the dark confines of Mordor, where Sauron now dwelt again and was busy with evil.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

[Note on dating the season: this act must take place between the raid on the Corsair fleet and meeting Arwen again in Lórien, and must either encompass his 49th birthday on 1 March or take place after it.]

Betrothed to Arwen — age 49 — 2980 (Midsummer eve)

2980 Aragorn enters Lórien and there meets again Arwen Undómiel. Aragorn gives her the ring of Barahir and they plight their troth upon the hill of Cerin Amroth.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

It came to pass that when Aragorn was nine and forty years of age he returned from perils on the dark confines of Mordor, where Sauron now dwelt again and was busy with evil. He was weary and he wished to go back to Rivendell and rest there for a while ere he journeyed into the far countries; and on his way he came to the borders of Lórien and was admitted to the hidden land by the Lady Galadriel.

He did not know it, but Arwen Undómiel was also there […] he came walking towards her under the trees of Caras Galadhon laden with flowers of gold, her choice was made and her doom appointed.

Then for a season they wandered together in the glades of Lothlórien, until it was time for him to depart. And on the evening of Midsummer Aragorn, Arathorn's son, and Arwen daughter of Elrond went to the fair hill, Cerin Amroth, in the midst of the land, and they walked unshod on the undying grass with elanor and niphredil about their feet. And there upon that hill they looked east to the Shadow and west to the Twilight, and they plighted their troth and were glad.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

Journeys in the East and South — age 49 or 50 to 78 — 2980/81 to 3009

[He] fought for the Lord of Gondor by land and by sea; and then in the hour of victory [over the Corsairs] he passed out of the knowledge of Men of the West, and went alone far into the East and deep into the South, exploring the hearts of Men, both evil and good, and uncovering the plots and devices of the servants of Sauron.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

It came to pass that when Aragorn was nine and forty years of age he returned from perils on the dark confines of Mordor, where Sauron now dwelt again and was busy with evil. He was weary and he wished to go back to Rivendell and rest there for a while ere he journeyed into the far countries; and on his way he came to the borders of Lórien and was admitted to the hidden land by the Lady Galadriel.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

3009 Gandalf and Aragorn renew their hunt for Gollum at intervals during the next eight years, searching in the vales of Anduin, Mirkwood, and Rhovanion to the confines of Mordor.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

[Note on dating: the start and end dates are deduced from other events. The start date must not only be after the victory over the Corsair fleet in 2980 but also after Aragorn experiences "perils on the dark confines of Mordor", meets Arwen again in Lórien later that same year, and presumably continues on with his original intention of returning to Rivendell in the same year. The likely (although not firm) end date is given by the fact that from 3009 onwards, Aragorn seems to be spending his time "searching in the vales of Anduin, Mirkwood, and Rhovanion to the confines of Mordor" for Gollum. He is therefore unlikely to have been able to make many journeys into the far east or south during this time.]

Back in North or West — age 70 — 3001

3001 Bilbo's farewell feast. Gandalf suspects his ring to be the One Ring.
The guard on the Shire is doubled. Gandalf seeks for news of Gollum and
calls on the help of Aragorn.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

[Aragorn said:] 'I have often kept watch on the borders of the Shire in
the last few years, when [Gandalf] was busy elsewhere. He seldom left it
unguarded.'

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 10, Strider

[Note: although this is during the period of his journeys to the south and east, Aragorn must have been somewhere where Gandalf could find him relatively easily, and not, for example, deep in the south or east at this time.]

Back in North, bids farewell to Gilraen — age 75 — 3006

After a few years Gilraen took leave of Elrond and returned to her own people in Eriador, and lived alone; and she seldom saw her son again, for he spent many years in far countries. But on a time, when Aragorn had returned to the North, he came to her, and she said to him before he went: "This is our last parting, Estel, my son" […] Aragorn went away heavy of heart. Gilraen died before the next spring.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Here Follows a Part of The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen

3007 Death of Gilraen.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

Gandalf and Aragorn hunt for Gollum — age 78 to 85 — 3009 to 1 February 3017

3009 Gandalf and Aragorn renew their hunt for Gollum at intervals during the next eight years, searching in the vales of Anduin, Mirkwood, and Rhovanion to the confines of Mordor.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

3017 Gollum is released from Mordor. He is taken by Aragorn in the Dead Marshes, and brought to Thranduil in Mirkwood.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

`At once I took my leave of Denethor, but even as I went northwards, messages came to me out of Lorien that Aragorn had passed that way, and that he had found the creature called Gollum. Therefore I went first to meet him and hear his tale. Into what deadly perils he had gone alone I dared not guess.'

`There is little need to tell of them,' said Aragorn. `If a man must needs walk in sight of the Black Gate, or tread the deadly flowers of Morgul Vale, then perils he will have. I, too, despaired at last, and I began my homeward journey. And then, by fortune, I came suddenly on what I sought: the marks of soft feet beside a muddy pool. But now the trail was fresh and swift, and it led not to Mordor but away. Along the skirts of the Dead Marshes I followed it, and then I had him. Lurking by a stagnant mere, peering in the water as the dark eve fell, I caught him, Gollum. He was covered with green slime. He will never love me, I fear; for he bit me, and I was not gentle. Nothing more did I ever get from his mouth than the marks of his teeth. I deemed it the worst part of all my journey, the road back, watching him day and night, making him walk before me with a halter on his neck, gagged, until he was tamed by lack of drink and food, driving him ever towards Mirkwood. I brought him there at last and gave him to the Elves, for we had agreed that this should be done.'

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 2, Ch 2, The Council of Elrond

According to Aragorn Gollum was taken at nightfall on February 1st.

Unfinished Tales, Part 3, Ch 4, The Hunt for the Ring: Other Versions of the Story

Aragorn takes Gollum to Thranduil — age 85 to 86 — 1 February 3017 to 21 March 3017

According to Aragorn Gollum was taken at nightfall on February 1st. Hoping to escape detection by any of Sauron's spies he drove Gollum through the north end of the Emyn Muil, and crossed Anduin just above Sarn Gebir. Driftwood was often cast up there on the shoals by the east shore, and binding Gollum to a log he swam across with him, and continued his journey north by tracks as westerly as he could find through the skirts of Fangorn, and so over Limlight, then over Nimrodel and Silverlode through the eaves of Lórien, and then on, avoiding Moria and Dimrill Dale, over Gladden until he came near the Carrock. There he crossed Anduin again, with the help of the Beornings, and passed into the Forest . The whole journey, on foot, was not much short of nine hundred miles, and this Aragorn accomplished with weariness in fifty days, reaching Thranduil on the twenty-first of March.

Unfinished Tales, Part 3, Ch 4, The Hunt for the Ring: Other Versions of the Story

Leaves Shire borders — age 87 — 1 May 3018 to early/mid September 3018

Strider looked grave. 'I do not know,' he said. 'I came west with [Gandalf] in the spring. I have often kept watch on the borders of the Shire in the last few years, when he was busy elsewhere. He seldom left it unguarded. We last met on the first of May: at Sarn Ford down the Brandywine. He told me that his business with you had gone well, and that you would be starting for Rivendell in the last week of September. As I knew he was at your side, I went away on a journey of my own. And that has proved ill; for plainly some news reached him, and I was not at hand to help.

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 10, Strider

[Aragorn said:] 'When I returned, many days ago, I heard the ill news. The tidings had gone far and wide that Gandalf was missing and the horsemen had been seen. It was the Elven-folk of Gildor that told me this; and later they told me that you had left your home; but there was no news of your leaving Buckland. I have been watching the East Road anxiously.'

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 10, Strider

22 [September 3018] The Black Riders reach Sarn Ford at evening; they drive off the guard of Rangers.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

29 [September 3018] Frodo reaches Bree at night.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

[Note on end date: Aragorn returns and apparently speaks to "the Elven-folk of Gildor" both before and after they meet Frodo (which takes place on 24 September 3018; this can be deduced from information in The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 3, Three Is Company), so he can have returned no later than this date. The conversations in The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 10, Strider take place on 29 September 3018, but Aragorn's reference to having returned "many days ago" suggests he returned somewhat earlier in September than the 24th.]
