About Aragorn is the king in Return of the King

Aragorn is the one true king turned exile in J. R. R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy The Lord of the Rings, in which the fantasy world of Middle Earth is at odds with evil forces at the helm of an evil lord Sauron who is intent on taking over the world and his one ring of power. Aragorn, son of Arathorn, is first introduced as just a Ranger of the North, also known as the Dunedain of the North. The Dunedain are the descendants of the lost kingdom of Arnor, the Men of the West, the ancestors of the current kingdom of Gondor. Initially, it is not know that he is the true heir to the throne of Gondor, which is currently under reign of the Stewards of Gondor awaiting the return of their king. Aragorn joins the Fellowship of the Ring and plays an integral part in the parties advancements closer to Mordor in order to destroy the One Ring of the Dark Lord Sauron. Only in the third book of the trilogy does Aragorn assume his place as king of Gondor, leading the last forces of Middle Earth against Sauron’s army at the Battle of Pelennor Fields. The battle’s decisiveness takes a quick turn the moment Frodo destroys the ring in the fires of Mordor.
