Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!
~ Aragorn's speech before the battle at the Black Gate.

Aragorn II Elessar, son of Arathorn, also known in the wild as Strider, is a fictional character from J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium and the deuteragonist of the novel The Lord of the Rings, and it's Oscar-Winning film trilogy by Peter Jackson.

He was portrayed by Viggo Mortensen in the films.

  • He joins the Fellowship on his own accord to protect Frodo on his journey to Mordor.

  • He led the efforts to heal the sick and wounded from the influence of the Witch-King.
  • He leads a suicide mission at Mordor to buy Frodo and Sam more time to destroy the Ring.
