Fictional Character

Born: 1954
Best known as: Hero of The Lord of the Rings
Aragorn is a leader of the Fellowship of the Ring, the hardy group of heroes in the J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy trilogy The Lord of the Rings. Ally of the wizard Gandalf and guide to the ring-bearer Frodo, Aragorn is a woodsman and warrior with noble blood. He is betrothed to the elf maiden Arwen Evenstar.
Extra credit:

Aragorn often calls himself "Aragorn son of Arathorn"; his other names include Strider, Elfstone and Elessar… He is unrelated to the real-life historical figure Catherine of Aragon… Aragorn was played by Viggo Mortensen in the hit Lord of the Rings film trilogy, which was released from 2001-2003.
