Years of the Trees First Age Second Age Third Age Fourth Age and Beyond

One of the Dúnedain of the North, a descendant of Aranarth the first Chieftain. His daughter was Gilraen, whose hand was sought by Arathorn, at that time heir to Chieftain Arador. Dírhael at first opposed the marriage, but his wife Ivorwen persuaded him to allow it. Just two years later, Dírhael's grandson was born: Aragorn, who would one day rule the Reunited Kingdom of the Dúnedain.
