Fengel's two older brothers, Folcred and Fastred, were killed in Harondor while fighting for Gondor, and as a result Fengel grew up rather spoiled. As a grown man he became known for his greed and love of gold.
Fengel in Old English means "prince" or "lord." The word appears in three places in Beowulf. The word is from a Germanic root meaning "to grasp," which may have suggested to Tolkien the description of the character as greedy.
 Portrayal in adaptations
2012: The Lord of the Rings Online:
- In the last winter of his reign, King Fengel was hunting north of the Entwade when an elderly woman named Wyrgende stumbled into his camp. Fengel sent her away into the dark night and the next day she was found frozen to death at the foot of a tall boulder, in which she had carved a curse against him. King Fengel was furious and ordered Wyrgende's body burned and the stone destroyed, but no man of his company could more her, and every hammer and mattock they set to the stone shattered on contact. Fengel himself assailed the stone with his sword until the blade shattered, and a shard pierced his thigh. The wound festered, and King Fengel died of poisoned blood on the first day of Spring.
