(AUDIO: The Riddle of Strider)
(AUDIO: Aragorn at the Stone of Erech)
"Aragorn is the heir of Isuldur and heir to the Throne of Gondor. Aragorn meets Frodo and the Hobbits under the identity of Strider, a ranger that looks everything besides a King. Gandalf knows his descent, however, and knows the large role he must play in the War of the Ring. Aragorn was raised in Rivendell where he met and fell in love with Arwen Evenstar, the daughter of Elrond. It was also in Rivendell that the Isuldur's sword that was broken, was forged again and Aragorn gave it the name of Anduril, the Flame of the West. It was Aragorn that walked the Paths of the Dead and with the Army he gathered there he conquered the Corsairs and played a crucial role in the victory of Minas Tirith. After the War of the Ring, Aragorn claimed his Throne of Gondor and became King. He married Arwen and lived a long life untill he died in 120 F.O. Soon after Arwen also died in Lorien."
Aragorn threw back his cloak. The elven-sheath glittered as he grasped it, and the bright blade of Anduril shone like a sudden flame as he swept it out. 'Elendil!' he cried. 'I am Aragorn son of Arathorn, and am called Elessar, the Elfstone, Dunadan, the heir of Isildur Elendil's son of Gondor. Here is the Sword that was Broken and is reforged again! Will you aid me or thwart me? Choose swiftly!
