Meet Aragorn in The Lord of The Rings trilogy

Aragorn II, son of Arathorn is one of the protagonists of The Lord of the Rings.

Aragorn was a Ranger of the North, first introduced with the name Strider at Bree, as the hobbits continued to call him throughout The Lord of the Rings.

He was eventually discovered to be the heir of Isildur and rightful claimant to the thrones of Arnor and Gondor.

He was also a confident of Gandalf and an integral part of the quest to destroy the One Ring and defeat the Dark Lord Sauron.

He led the Fellowship of the Ring following the loss of Gandalf in the Mines of Moria. When the Fellowship was broken, he tracked the hobbits Merry and Pippin with the help of Legolas the elf and Gimli the dwarf to Fangorn Forest and fought in the battle at Helm's Deepand the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.

After defeating Sauron's forces in Gondor he led an army of Gondor and Rohan against the Black Gate of Mordor to occupy Sauron's attention so that Frodo and Sam would have a chance to destroy the One Ring.

At the end of The Lord of the Rings he was crowned King Elessar Telcontar of Gondor. He married Elrond's daughter Arwen, and assumed the Sceptre of Annúminas as King of Arnor, uniting the two kingdoms for the first time since the reign of Isildur.
