So what happened to people after the War in Lord of the Rings? Here is our answer.
01. Aragorn II Elessar
When in the year 120 of the Fourth Age, King Elessar realised his days were at an end, he went to the House of the Kings in the Silent Street. He said farewell to his son Eldarion and his daughters and gave Eldarion his crown and sceptre. Arwen remained at Aragorn’s side until he died.
Died of a broken heart at Cerin Amroth in Lórien, and was buried there one year after the death of Aragorn, to whom she had been wedded for 122 years. She was 2901 years old.
03. Samwise Gamgee
After his wife died in the year 61 of the Fourth Age (SR 1482), Sam entrusted the Red Book to his daughter, Elanor and left the Shire. Because he was also a Ring-bearer, he was allowed to pass over the Sea to be reunited with Frodo in the Undying Lands.
04. Meriadoc Brandybuck
He married Estella Bolger some time after the end of the Third Age and later became the Master of Buckland. He wrote Old Words and Names in the Shire. At the age of 102, he returned to Rohan and Gondor with Pippin only to die there a few years later. He was laid to rest in Gondor, and when Elessar died, he and Pippin were entombed beside the great king.
05. Peregrin Took
He later became the 32nd Thain of the Shire, a position he held for 50 years before retiring, when he revisited Rohan and Gondor with Merry. Peregrin remained in Gondor for the rest of his life. Pippin died a few years later and was laid to rest with Merry in Gondor. After the great King Elessar (Aragorn) died, Merry and Pippin were entombed next to the great king.
He led a large number of Durin’s Folk south to establish a new Dwarf kingdom in the Glittering Caves, which were located behind Helm’s Deep where Gimli was trapped during the battle, and he became the first Lord of the Glittering Caves. Later, he traveled with Legolas into the West and became the first dwarf to visit the Undying Lands.
After the War of the Ring had ended, she decided to give up dreams of glory in battle and devote her life to peace and a happy marriage. She married Faramir and settled in Ithilien for the rest of her life where they had at least one son.
He was appointed by King Elessar as the Prince of Ithilien and Beregond to be the Captain of his guard, the White Company. Later on he settled in Emyn Arnen with his wife Éowyn, where they had at least one son (named Elboron), who succeeded him as Steward of Gondor, Prince of Ithilien, and Lord of Emyn Arnen, after Faramir’s death.
He became known as Éomer Éadig, or “the Blessed”, because during his reign Rohan recovered from the hurts of the War and became a rich and fruitful land again. Éomer had met Lothíriel, daughter of Prince Imrahil of Dol Amroth during his stay in Gondor, and they were wed. She bore him a son Elfwine, who succeeded him after his death.
