Happy Birthday Strider

'He is Aragorn son of Arathorn,' said Elrond; 'and he is descended through many fathers from Isildur Elendil's son of Minas Ithil.' (The Council of Elrond; The Lord of the Rings) A film about his parents can be seen online.

In the year 2931 of the Third Age of Middle Earth, Aragorn son of Arathorn II was born on March 1st. (Appendix B; The Lord of the Rings)

So there you have it Aragorn is as good as Welsh in the eyes of Tolkien! Very little is written about Aragorn's search for Gollum in The Lord of the Rings, but there is a film of it online.

Oh yes, and HAPPY SAINT DAVID'S DAY to you all. A National Saint who is from the country of which he is the patron, what ever next?
