Formenos was built after the banishment of Fëanor from Tirion. Here, Fëanor and his sons spent twelve Valian Years (about fifty years of the Sun) in exile. Some of the Ñoldor, including their King Finwë, went with Fëanor into exile. It was also home to the treasury of Fëanor where he kept the Silmarils in a chamber of iron. It was here that Melkor slew Finwë as he stole those jewels during the Darkening of Valinor.
