In the ''[[Silmarillion]]'', Angrod is listed as the elder brother of [[Aegnor]] and [[Galadriel]], and the younger brother of [[Finrod|Finrod Felagund]] and [[Orodreth]]. In his later writings, however, Tolkien changed Angrod's role to that of father to Orodreth rather than brother, and he became also the grandfather of [[Ereinion Gil-galad]]. Together with Aegnor, Angrod held the highlands of [[Dorthonion]] against [[Morgoth]]. Angrod and Aegnor were both slain in the [[Dagor Bragollach]] ("Battle of Sudden Flame").<ref>{{S|Fingolfin}}</ref>
