Indis was a Vanyar Elf of Valinor.

Indis was closely related to Ingwë, the King of the Vanyar and High King of the Elves. She was known for her great beauty and was thus referred to as Indis the Fair.

BiographyEdit

Indis was the second wife of Finwë, the High King of the Ñoldor who after the death of Míriel Serindë married her. The couple had children and she became the mother of their two sons, Fingolfin and Finarfin and because of Finwë's first marriage she was the stepmother to Fëanor, his first and only son to Míriel. Unfortunately, Fëanor harbored very little love for her or her sons which probably contributed to his mistrust of Fingolfin when Melkor began spreading his poisonous lies amongst the Ñoldor.[1][2]

After the death of her husband at the hands of Melkor, she probably went back to live with her people the Vanyar.

Later RelativesEdit

Through Fingolfin, Indis is the grandmother of Turgon and thus the great-great-great grandmother of Elrond and Elros, and through Elros, the line of the Dunedain.

Through Finarfin, Indis is the grandmother of the great Lady Galadriel of Lothlórien, thus adjoining her to Galadriel's daughter Celebrian as great grandmother and once more to Celebrian's children, Elladan, Elrohir, and Arwen Undómiel, as great-great grandmother. Also, in being connected to Arwen in this way, she is also distantly related to the Kings of Gondor, as Arwen married King Elessar of Gondor, and produced the heir to the throne, Eldarion.
