Aegnor was born in Tirion. 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. 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.
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, and was killed along with his brother soon after when Morgoth broke the Siege at the start of Dagor Bragollach (Battle of Sudden Flame) in FA 455.
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.
