Angrod was a Ñoldorin elf, the second son of Finarfin and lord of the Ñoldor of Dorthonion.

BiographyEdit

Angrod was the elder brother of Galadriel and Aegnor, and the younger brother of Finrod Felagund. In FA 6 he was received in Doriath by King Thingol wanting his permission to establish realms in Beleriand outside Thingol's realm.

Together with Aegnor he held the northern slopes of the highlands of Dorthonion against Morgoth. They were both killed in the Dagor Bragollach (Battle of Sudden Flame). Along with his brothers and sister, they were the few princes of the West who could enter Doriath through their mother Eärwen of Alqualondë.

His wife was a Ñoldorin lady named Eldalótë (Edhellos in Sindarin). His son was Orodreth.[1]

EtymologyEdit

His name was a Sindarized form of his Telerin Quenya name Angaráto[2], which means "Iron[3] Champion".

Earlier versions of the legendariumEdit

In the published The Silmarillion, Orodreth is given as Angrod's brother instead. This was an editorial decision by Christopher Tolkien which he admitted as a mistake.
