Here is the Sword that was Broken and is forged again! Will you aid me or thwart me? Frodo had decided to continue his journey alone accompanied by Sam and Boromir was slain while defending Merry and Pippin, who were captured by orcs.
Dejected, he led Legolas and Gimli to the site of the battle. Clues led Aragorn to believe that the hobbits might still be alive, prompting him to lead the party into Fangorn Forest. They found not the hobbits, but Gandalf the White whom they initially mistook for Sarumansent back from death to continue his duties in Middle-earth.
Gandalf told them that the hobbits were in the care of the Ents of Fangorn.
Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli then helped the people of Rohan in the Battle of the Hornburgin which Saruman's army was destroyed. The Dead Men owed allegiance Aragorn as the heir of Isildur; it had been prophesied by Isildur and Malbeth the Seer that the Dead would be summoned to pay their debt for betraying Gondor millennia before. With their aid the Corsairs of Umbar were defeated at the port of Pelargir. Using the Corsair's shipsAragorn then sailed up the Anduin to Minas Tirith with a small force of Rangers and a large contingent of men and soldiers from the southern regions of Gondor.
As they approached Minas Tirith, Aragorn unfurled the royal standard that Arwen had made for him, showing both the White Tree of Gondor and the jewelled crown and seven stars of the House of Elendil. With the help of the southern forces the armies of Gondor and Rohan rallied and defeated Sauron's army in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.

When Gondor's throne became vacant in T. By the time of the Lord of the Rings, however, Gondor had been under the rule of the Stewards of Gondor for centuries, as it was widely doubted that any of the royal line still lived. Aragorn healed FaramirDenethor's heir, who had been expected to die; Faramir, unlike his father, recognized Aragorn as his lord and the rightful heir to the throne.
Aragorn's humility and self-sacrifice gained him the hearts of the inhabitants of Gondor's capital city. His healing abilities were noted also by the people of Gondor; as Ioreth said, "The hands of the King are the hands of a healer, and so shall the rightful king be known".
The people hailed Aragorn as King that same evening. To avoid conflict he left Minas Tirith and refused to enter it again until he was crowned King.

Gandalf had been given supreme command of the war effort after the Pelennor Fields, and acted as chief spokesman in the parley with the Mouth of Sauron ; but Aragorn commanded the allied troops during the battle and its aftermath. His reign was marked by great harmony and prosperity within Gondor and Arnor, and by a renewal of communication and cooperation between Men, Elves, and Dwarves, fostered by his vigorous rebuilding campaign following the war.
Aragorn led the forces of the Reunited Kingdom on military campaigns against some Easterlings and Haradrimre-establishing rule over much territory that Gondor had lost in previous centuries.
He died at the age ofafter  years as king. The graves of Merry and Pippin who had died in Gondor 58 years prior were set beside his. He was succeeded on the throne by his son, Eldarion. Arwen and Aragorn also had at least two daughters. Upon hearing of Aragorn's death, Legolas built a grey ship in Ithilienand sailed to the Undying Landsalong with Gimli. It is also stated that he was the tallest of the Company. He was a skilled healer, notably with the plant athelas also known as Kingsfoil.
Though he was wise and strong, he was not immune to self-doubt.
He doubted the wisdom of his decisions while leading the Fellowship after the loss of Gandalf in Moria, and blamed himself for many of their subsequent misfortunes. Aragorn fits the 'sacrificial king' archetype that Karen Nikakis outlines in her article on sacral kingship.
Nikakis notes several sacrifices that Aragorn makes for the benefit of those around him and for his future people such as waiting to claim his throne this also including waiting to marry Arwen until the One Ring is destroyed. He was the founder of the House of Telcontar Telcontar is "Strider" in Quenyaafter the nickname given him by the rustics of the Northwhich ruled Gondor well into the Fourth Age of Middle-earth ; in records, his full regnal name is given as Elessar Telcontar "Elfstone Strider".
In the Houses of Healing, he called himself Envinyatar, the renewer. Boromir did, however, prove himself a valuable companion on the Fellowship's attempt to pass over the Misty Mountains: In the retreat from Caradhras, Boromir proved his strength and stamina as he burrowed through shoulder-high snowbanks alongside Aragorn to clear the path back down the mountain.
The Fellowship then passed under the mountains through the caverns of Moriawhere Gandalf was lost, and Aragorn became their new guide.
Boromir had always planned to go to Minas Tirith, and despite the consensus reached at Rivendell that it must be destroyed in Mordor, he urged the Fellowship to accompany him to Minas Tirith before going on to Mordor. As Frodo pondered his course from Parth GalenBoromir privately urged Frodo to use the Ring in Gondor's defence rather than to "throw it away".
Finally, he succumbed to the temptation to take the Ring for himself, justifying this by his duty to his people and his belief in his own integrity. We of Minas Tirith have been staunch through long years of trial. We do not desire the power of wizard-lords, only strength to defend ourselves, strength in a just cause.
Boromir - Wikipedia
In our need chance brings to light the Ring of Power. It is a gift, I say; a gift to the foes of Mordor. It is mad not to use it, to use the power of the Enemy against him. The fearless, the ruthless, these alone will achieve victory.
What could not a warrior do in this hour, a great leader? What could not Aragorn do? Or if he refuses, why not Boromir? The Ring would give me power of Command. How I would drive the hosts of Mordor, and all men would flock to my banner! Frodo vanished by putting on the Ring and fled, intending to continue the quest alone. Boromir, realizing his betrayal, immediately repented his actions and wept. Searching unsuccessfully for Frodo, he told the Fellowship of Frodo's disappearance, though not of his own misdeeds.
The hobbits in a frenzy scattered to look for Frodo. Aragorn, who suspected Boromir's part in Frodo's flight, ordered him to follow and protect Merry and Pippinwhich he did without question. The Fellowship was then attacked by a band of orcs. The Two Towers[ edit ] During the scattered fighting against orcs near Parth Galen, Boromir was mortally wounded by arrows while defending Merry and Pippin, redeeming himself for trying to take the Ring.
The fighting is described through Pippin's eyes: He had made them fight. He slew many of them and the rest fled. But they had not gone far on the way back when they were attacked again, by a hundred Orcs at least, some of them very large, and they shot a rain of arrows: Boromir had blown his great horn till the woods rang, and at first the Orcs had been dismayed and had drawn back; but when no answer but the echoes came, they had attacked more fiercely than ever.
Pippin did not remember much more. His last memory was of Boromir leaning against a tree, plucking out an arrow; then darkness fell suddenly. As Boromir lay dying, he remorsefully confessed to attempting to take the Ring from Frodo, and accepted his own impending death as penance. He urged Aragorn to save Minas Tirith, as he himself had failed. Aragorn reassured him that he had not failed, that "few have gained such a victory".
