Map of Arnor

The Dúnedain of Arnor were one of the two great divisions of the descendants of the Númenóreans living in Middle-earth (the other being the Dúnedain of Gondor in the South-kingdom).


Aragorn II, Chieftain of the Dúnedain of Arnor, and Isildur's Heir

Before the foundation of Arnor, there was already a sizable Númenórean population living in Eriador, a result of the slow emigration of Númenóreans which had started under Tar-Meneldur and Tar-Aldarion. The region was home to Middle Men of Edain stock, and the early colonists soon interbred with the indigenous population. After the Downfall of Númenor, Elendil and his four ships of refugees joined with the colonists to become the Dúnedain of Arnor.

The North-kingdom of Arnor was founded in SA 3320 by the High King of the Dúnedain, Elendil. After his death in the War of the Last Alliance the Sceptre of Annúminas was inherited by Isildur and then passed to his descendants via his youngest surviving son, Valandil. Before the end of the first millenium of the Third Age, the land of Arnor fell into dispute between the sons of High King Eärendur.

Afterwards the Dúnedain who lived there became divided into three realms: Arthedain, Cardolan and Rhudaur. One by one, these kingdoms fell to war, plague, and assaults by the evil-realm of Angmar and finally ended in TA 1975 with the death of its last King Arvedui. The last of the Dúnedain of Arnor had become a dwindled and wandering people known as the Rangers of the North.

Aragorn as King of the Reunited Kingdom

Nonetheless, the line of Isildur was maintained through the Chieftain of the Rangers of the North. Aragorn II was Isildur's Heir through thirty-nine generations, and it was he who reunited the Kingdoms of the Dúnedain after three thousand years of separation, restoring the realm of Arnor[1]
