Ingwë was a Vanyar Elf, the King of the Vanyar and the High King of the Elves.

Biography

Ingwë

Ingwë was the leader of the first Kindred of Elves of the Vanyar tribe, and the uncle of Finwë's wife Indis. His name means "first one, Chief" in Quenya. He was perhaps one of the first twelve elves who awoke in Cuiviénen with Imin, who was the first to awake. He became one of the three elves, with Elwë and Finwë, of the first embassy to Aman.

Ingwë became the first of the Vanyar to travel to Valinor with Oromë. Loving its beauty and bliss, he returned to his people and urged them to undertake a journey to Aman. He and his kin were fascinated with the Valar, and they decided not to return to Middle-earth. They stayed and made Ingwë their king. The Mindon Eldaliéva in Tirion was built in honor of him.

Ingwë was reckoned as High King of all the Eldalië, the Elves of the Great Journey, and because of this he is called Ingwë Ingweron; the "Chief of the Chieftains". He lived in Taniquetil, ruling from beneath Manwë High King of Arda.

Ingwë never set foot on Middle-earth after he began living in Taniquetil. When the Vanyar took up arms in the War of Wrath and followed The Host of Valinor, Ingwë did not join them[1][2][3], but his son Ingwion led the Vanyarin warriors capturing Eglarest in the first battle of the war.
