Argeleb II was the tenth King of Arthedain (T.A. 1589- 1670). He succeeded his father, Araphor, and had the unpleasant chore of presiding over Arthedain during the years of the Great Plague (T.A. 1636-37). Even before the Plague, his realm was wounded and in many areas deserted, so in T.A. 1600, he invited the Hobbits Marcho and Blanco to settle the Shire.
