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

He was born or perhaps was one of the first twelve elves awoken in Cuiviénen by Imin the first. He became the first of the Vanya to travel to Valinor with Orome. 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. The Mindon Eldaliéva in Tirion was built in honor of him.

Ingwë is the leader of the first Kindred of Elves called the Vanyar and the uncle of Indis, wife of Finwë. His name means "first one, Chief" in Quenya. He is one of the three elves, with Elwë and Finwë of the first embassy to Aman and he persuades all of the clan of Vanyar to follow him there where he becomes their king and High-king of all Eldalië. He was reckoned as High King of all the Eldar and because of this he is called Ingwë Ingweron "Chief of the Chieftains". He lives in Taniquetil, ruling from beneath Manwë High King of Arda. He has a son named Ingwion as well as other unnamed children.

When the Vanyar took up arms in the War of Wrath and followed The Host of Valinor, it is unknown whether or not he led them or was even there, but it is possible as he was their revered king.
