BiographyEdit

Aegnor and Andreth by Filat

Aegnor with his love, Andreth, by Filat

Aegnor was born in Tirion.[1] When Fëanor spoke in Tirion, Aegnor was moved by his words as was his brother but neither spoke against their father; however, he and his brothers followed the host of the Ñoldor to Middle-earth.[2] When the Ñoldor returned to Middle-earth, he together with Angrod held the northern slopes of the highlands of Dorthonion against Morgoth throughout the time of the Siege of Angband.[3]

Aegnor never married. He was in love with the Bëorian woman Andreth, and she returned his feelings. They spent much time discussing Men and Elves and their fates in the world, which are fully explained in the Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth. However, it was wartime and he did not make his intentions towards her clear enough. He was killed along with his brother soon after when Morgoth broke the Siege at the start of Dagor Bragollach in FA 455.[4]

EtymologyEdit

The name Aegnor is a Sindarized form of his Quenya name Aikanár or Aikanáro, meaning "Sharp Flame" or "Fell Fire".[5]

Other versions of the legendariumEdit

In the early versions of Tolkien's legendarium (see The History of Middle-earth), a character named Egnor appears. In some of the earliest stories (see: The Book of Lost Tales), this was the name of the father of Beren (who then was a Ñoldorin elf, not a Man as in later writings). It is far from certain if this Egnor was the same character.

Miscellaneous informationEdit

The name Aegnor was also assigned to the movie-only character Figwit for the trading card game.
