Aranarth of the Dúnedain born (estimated date)
Event Type: Genealogical
Age: 3rd Age - The Kings
Aranarth, son of Arvedui last King of Arthedain, later first Chieftain of the Dúnedain, was born.
"1940 Gondor and Arnor renew communications and form an alliance. Arvedui weds Fíriel daughter of Ondoher of Gondor"
The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age
"1 Aranarth born 1938 lived 168 years and died 2016"
The Peoples of Middle-Earth, HoME Vol 12, Part 1, Ch 7, The Heirs of Elendil: The Chieftains of the Dúnedain
Due to the inconsistancy with the dates of Arvedui's marriage (1940) and the birth of his eldest son (1938), the year listed (1942) is estimated to fit the chronology.
