Aragorn In The Return of the King:
Following the victory at Helm's Deep. Aragorn, Gandalf, Gimli, Legolas, Éomer and King Théoden ride to Isengard and find Merry and Pippin serving as gate-wardens. They then go to the foot of the Tower of Orthanc where Treebeard greets them. Gandalf charges him with keeping Saruman prisoner. The whole party, Merry and Pippin included, make for Edoras. At Edoras, King Théoden calls for a celebration for the victory at Helm's Deep. Gandalf and Aragorn talk of Frodo's quest. Aragorn tells Gandalf that Sam went with Frodo.

That night as everyone sleeps, Pippin takes the Palantir from Gandalf and Sauron sees him. The next day Gandalf takes Pippin and rides for Minas Tirith, after warning Aragorn that Rohan may be called to aid Gondor. As Aragorn looks on from Edoras, he spies the lighting of the Beacons of Gondor. He then calls on King Théoden to ride to Gondor's aid. They all set out for Dunharrow, where Théoden has ordered that the Rohirrim assemble.

While at Dunharrow, Elrond brings Narsil, reforged as Andúril at the behest of Arwen, to Aragorn. He tells Aragorn that it is time to take up the mantle of a king and that Aragorn must take the Paths of the Dead to call upon the Oathbreakers. Aragorn prepares to set out immediately and encounters Eowyn, who he finally bluntly informs that his heart is for another and that she should look elsewhere for love. Gimli and Legolas insist on joining Aragorn and they set out. Under the mountain, Aragorn confronts the King of the Dead and as an heir to Isildur, he orders him to fulfill the vow that they made to Elendil. They had ignored their vow when called upon by Elendil and his son, Isildur had then cursed them.

As the battle of Pelennor Fields rages on through the first (Orcs) and second wave (Haradrim) of forces, the third wave arrives at Osgiliath on Corsair ships. However, instead of the mercenaries, Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas arrive aboard a ship. The Dead appear behind them and swarm over the city, onto the battlefield and into Minas Tirith. After the battle is over, Aragorn states that their vow has been fulfilled, releasing them from Isildur's curse.

After a war council, Aragorn leads what army is left of the Men of Gondor and Rohan to the Black Gate of Mordor in order to distract Sauron from seeking Frodo and the Ring. They are encircled, but battle on until the Ring is destroyed and Sauron with it. Aragorn returns to Minas Tirith and is crowned King of Gondor. Arwen arrives to become his bride.
