'''Angrod''' ([[Sindarin|S]], pron. {{IPA|[ˈaŋrod]}}; died {{FA|455}}) was a son of [[Finarfin]] and [[Eärwen]] and a lord of the [[Noldor]].
+
He was the elder brother of [[Aegnor]] and [[Galadriel]], and the younger brother of [[Finrod|Finrod Felagund]]. Together with Aegnor he 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>
 
+
== History ==
+
=== Life in Valinor ===
+
Angrod was the elder brother of [[Aegnor]] and [[Galadriel]], and the younger brother of [[Finrod|Finrod Felagund]]. He was born to Finarfin and Eärwen sometime between {{YT|1300}} and {{YT|1362|n}} in [[Valinor]]. While living in Valinor, he married an Elven maid named [[Eldalótë]]. She bore him one son, [[Orodreth|Arothir]], who went with him into the Exile.<ref name="Shib"/>
+
 
+
It is said that he, along with his brother [[Aegnor]], was a good friend and a constant companion of [[Fingon]], son of [[Fingolfin]].<ref>{{S|Flight}}</ref>
+
 
+
=== Life in Beleriand ===
+
==== Messenger of the Noldor ====
+
[[File:Marya Filatova - Wrathful coloured.jpg|thumb|left|250px|[[Marya Filatova]] - ''Wrathful'']]
+
[[File:Marya Filatova - Embassy.jpg|thumb|right|[[Marya Filatova]] - ''Embassy'']]
+
When the Noldor returned to [[Middle-earth]], Angrod son of Finarfin was the first of the Exiles to come to [[Doriath]], and to [[Menegroth]] - to the kingdom of his granduncle [[Thingol]] and his wife [[Melian]]. He was received there, along with his siblings, because of their kinship with the King.<ref name="Return">{{S|13}}</ref>
+
 
+
He first came to Menegroth as a messenger of his brother [[Finrod]], and he spoke to Thingol concerning the manner of the deeds and numbers of the new-come Noldor; however, he did not speak of the [[First Kinslaying|kin-slaying]] at [[Alqualondë]], nor of the [[Oath of Fëanor]], nor of the burning of the ships at [[Losgar]]. Thus Thingol hearkened to Angrod's words, and he said that the Noldor have leave to dwell in [[Hithlum]], [[Dorthonion]], and the [[East Beleriand]].<ref name="Return"/>
+
 
+
When he returned to [[Mithrim]], he found the Lords of the Noldor holding a council, and when the [[Sons of Fëanor|sons]] of [[Fëanor]] heard of the message of Thingol, they were angered at him. However, [[Maedros]], eldest of Fëanor's sons, laughed - perceiving that Thingol was only granting the Noldor the lands in which his power doesn't run.<ref name="Return"/>
+
 
+
However, [[Caranthir]], harshest of the sons of Fëanor, who did not love the children of Finarfin, scolded Angrod and his kin - and Angrod being wrathful, he left the council.<ref name="Return"/>
+
 
+
==== Life in Dorthonion ====
+
[[File:Marya Filatova - Lords of Dorthonion.jpg|thumb|left|[[Marya Filatova]] - ''Lords of Dorthonion'']]
+
Angrod and his brother Aegnor were given the lordship of a region called [[Dorthonion]], a highland looking over the great grassy plain, [[Ard-galen]], towards the [[Thangorodrim]]. There they ruled as the vassals of their elder brother Finrod.<ref>{{S|14}}</ref>
+
 
+
===== Angrod's Words to Thingol =====
+
In time, words of the Kinslaying reached the ears of [[Círdan]], Lord of the [[Falas]], and a kinsman of Thingol. However, Círdan sent messengers to Thingol telling him of what he had heard.<ref name="Noldor">{{S|15}}</ref>
+
 
+
It chanced that at that time, the sons of Finarfin were dwelling in Menegroth as guests of the King. But when the news of the Kinslaying reached the ears of Thingol, he was wrathful, and he demanded to know the truth. But Finrod would not betray any of his kin - not even the sons of Fëanor - and he remained silent, and endured the scorn of the King.<ref name="Noldor"/>
+
 
+
However, Angrod, who was also present there, remembering the harsh words of Caranthir, at last told to Thingol everything that had come to pass since their self-imposed exile from Valinor. Thingol, deeming the sons of Finarfin innocent, told to them that they may come again later, if they wish. With the House of Fingolfin, hearing of their travail in the icy waste of [[Helcaraxë]], he decided to keep some friendship still. However, he banned all use of [[Quenya]] in his realm, saying that he would not suffer to hear the language of those who slew his kin.<ref name="Noldor"/>
+
 
+
===== Dagor Bragollach =====
+
In {{FA|455}}, [[Morgoth]] broke the [[Siege of Angband]] and attacked all Beleriand. Of all the regions of that land, Dorthonion was the most exposed one to the attack from the North. Therefore the sons of Finarfin, Angrod and Aegnor, bore the brunt of the assault, and were slain in battle.<ref>{{S|18}}</ref>

== Etymology ==
 
== Etymology ==
Angrod's [[father-name]] was '''Angaráto''' (pron. {{IPA|[ˌaŋɡaˈraːto]}}), meaning "Iron Champion" in [[Telerin]] (from ''[[anga]]'' = "iron" and ''[[aráto]]'' = "champion"). The name ''Angrod'' is the [[Sindarin]] form of Angaráto.  It is said that probably both he and Finrod received the same name ''[[Aráto]]'', and this later differentiated to ''[[Finrod|Findaráto]]'' and the above.  Angrod's [[epessë]] was ''[[Angamaitë]]'' "iron-handed" (from ''[[anga]]'' + ''[[maitë]]''). Those names he received because of his great strength and large arms when he was yet still a boy. The Quenya form of Angrod's name would be '''Artanga'''.<ref name="Shib">{{PM|Finwe}}</ref>

Angrod (S, pron. [ˈaŋrod]; Years of the TreesF.A. 455) was a son of Finarfin and Eärwen and a lord of the Noldor.

He was the elder brother of Aegnor and Galadriel, and the younger brother of Finrod Felagund. Together with Aegnor he held the highlands of Dorthonion against Morgoth. Angrod and Aegnor were both slain in the Dagor Bragollach ("Battle of Sudden Flame").[1]

Etymology

Angrod's father-name was Angaráto (pron. [ˌaŋɡaˈraːto]), meaning "Iron Champion" in Quenya (from anga = "iron" and aráto = "champion"). The name Angrod is the Sindarin form of Angaráto. It is written in the Shibboleth that probably both he and Finrod received the same name Aráto, and this later differentiated to Findaráto and the above. Angrod's epessë was Angamaitë "iron-handed" (from anga + maitë).

Other Versions of the Legendarium

From the earliest writings (for example, the Lay of Leithian) till after the publication of the first edition of The Lord of the Rings Orodreth is given as Angrod and Felagund's brother instead. This was retained in the published Silmarillion, although the changes of their father's name from Finrod to Finarfin and of (Inglor) Felagund's name to Finrod Felagund were adopted there. Also, in the published Silmarillion Gil-galad is the son of Fingon, this was an editorial decision by Christopher Tolkien which he admitted was a mistake.

Notes

  1. J.R.R. Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien (ed.), Morgoth's Ring, "The Annals of Aman", p. 106 lists 1300 as the birth of Finrod (then named "Inglor") and 1362 as the birth of Galadriel
  2. Years of the Sun. Each Year of the Tree is equal to 9.582 Years of the Sun, and the Years of the Trees ended in the year 1500. So, 455 + 9.582 x 138 = 1,777; 455 + 9.582 x 200 = 2,371.
