Biography Edit

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. 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]

Etymology Edit

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

Earlier versions of the legendarium Edit

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