In J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium, Finarfin was the third son and youngest child of Finwë. Finarfin's mother was Indis. His half brother was Fëanor and his full brother Fingolfin. His sisters were Findis and Irimë. He married Eärwen, princess of the Teleri. He had four children: Finrod Felagund, Angrod, Aegnor and Galadriel. Orodreth appears as one of Finarfin's sons in the published Silmarillion. In Tolkien's later writings however he clearly is Angrod's son. Christopher Tolkien used an older form in the Silmarillion, but later described this as a mistake. [1] Finarfin was said to be the fairest and wisest of Finwë's sons. Like all of Finwë's sons, Finarfin founded his own house. Uniquely among the Noldor he and his descendants all had golden hair inherited from his mother, so his house was sometimes called "The Golden House of Finarfin".

Trivia

  • In Quenya, his name is Finwë Arato finwë, "Finwë-Noble-Finwë". Finarfin is the Sindarized form.
  • Finarfin was called Finrod in earlier versions of the Middle-earth mythology, and his son Finrod Felagund Inglor Felagund. As such he appears in the first edition of The Lord of the Rings as Finrod. This was changed in later editions, but not all references to Inglor were removed: see Gildor Inglorion.

Finarfin (607 words)
Finarfin was most loath to leave Aman, and he and his son Finrod Felagund were in the rear of the host.
First is a reason why Finarfin is never mentioned in connection with the quarrels of his older brothers: He did not share their temperament, and preferred not to be involved, so he went to Alqualonde, which also gave him the chance to meet and marry Earwen.
Finarfin was inclined to seek peaceful ends to situations, and Morgoth was inclined to cause strife.
