How Old Is Arthur Morgan? Red Dead Redemption 2

How Old Is Arthur Morgan? Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a stunning, lore-rich story of the American West from Grand Theft Auto developers Rockstar Games.

As a follow-up to the blockbuster Red Dead 1, this wild west adventure may surpass its predecessor. The story of Red Dead Redemption 2 gives you drama, American frontier beauty, and lots of dust. What more can you ask for?

In fleeing federal agents and bounty hunters (and dealing with Micah Bell’s whole…thing…), Arthur and John Marston, plus Hosea Matthews, Micah, and Dutch van der Linde’s gang, suffer and struggle through a number of trying situations; it’s not all miserable for the, though, they also have to deal with wild animals! Wait…

Spoiler Alert: If you are reading this before completing your playthrough of Red Dead Redemption 2… don’t!

There are a couple of details that might hurt your enjoyment of the exceptional story.

Arthur Morgan’s Age and Birthday

Red Dead Redemption 2 is an impeccably written AAA title and a successor to a previous title with just as much detail; as such, the backstory, lore, and history of the characters are as readily available as they are deep.

We know every detail of Arthur Morgan’s life, relationships, and more!

How Old Is Arthur Morgan?

Arthur is a deep, angsty outlaw with a quiet moral compass and icy demeanor. Criminal and killer aside, Arthur Morgan has courage and integrity, defending people he’s decided to care about at his own risk.

His use of violence is starkly contrasted with that of Micah.

Just like himself, Arthur’s father was a criminal, too. His mother already dead, the Red Dead 2 protagonist was orphaned by the time he was 11.

Arthur Morgan is 36 years old during Red Dead Redemption 2. This is also the age at which Arthur Morgan is killed.

When Is Arthur Morgan’s Birthday?

The America of Arthur Morgan’s birth year was a very different country than the America of 2022. The nation had significantly fewer states than it does today, Lincoln was president, and the Civil War was two years from coming to a close.

Having to grow up in that type of world, it’s no wonder Arthur ended up so rough and jaded.

Arthur is a native of the northern United States, which was only 34 states strong at the time of his birth. You’re welcome for the fun history fact.

While we don’t have a precise date, Arthur Morgan was born in 1863, the same year as the Emancipation Proclamation. (That’s a two-for-one on history facts.)
