The main part of this article relates to the last versions of Middle-earth's history, and as such may controvert parts of The Silmarillion. See Middle-earth canon for a discussion. This subject's portrayal in earlier or alternative versions is discussed in the other versions of the legendarium section.

Amrod (YT - FA 538 ?) and Amras were the youngest twin sons of Fëanor. From their mother Nerdanel they inherited red hair, instead of Fëanor's black.

Amrod became a hunter in Middle-earth and with his brother they held the southern lands of Estolad in the East Beleriand between the rivers Gelion, Celon, and the Andram behind the March of Maedhros. Amrod survived most of the War of the Jewels, but eventually fell in the Kinslaying of Sirion. Amras however was killed at the burning of the ships in Losgar.

EtymologyEdit

Amrod's father name in Quenya is Pityafinwë, meaning "Little Finwë". His mother name is Ambarussa, meaning "Top-russet", which refers to his hair. His younger twin Amras was also called Ambarussa, and they both answered to the name.

Other versions of the legendariumEdit

In the published Silmarillion Amrod only appears together with his twin brother Amras, but in late writings which were left out of the edited Silmarillion by Christopher Tolkien, the story of Amras' death at Losgar appeared. For this reason wherever both Amrod and Amras appear in the published material it should be read as Amrod alone.
