The first mention of Thingol is when he travels from Cuiviénen with Oromë to see the land of Valinor. Upon his return, he manages to convince many of his people to follow him back to that country. On the Great Journey to the West, the Teleri lag behind, and do not arrive at the coast until after the departure of the moving island of Tol Eressëa. Thus, they stay in Beleriand for many years until Tol Eressëa is brought again to fetch them. By this time, many of the Teleri have grown to like Beleriand, and decide to stay there. Elwë is among them, having encountered Melian the Maia in the woods of Nan Elmoth and fallen deeply in love with her. Thingol and Melian become king and queen of the Teleri who stay in Beleriand, who then become known as the Sindar. Interestingly, since Thingol had previously visited Valinor as an ambassador of the Teleri, he is, uniquely, both of the Sindar and of the Calaquendi. Melian has a daughter, named Lúthien and said to be the fairest woman ever to live. In the fictional works of J. R. R. Tolkien, Cuiviénen is the land where the Quendi or Elves awoke. ...

Initially, the lords of the Ñoldor avoided telling Thingol of the Kinslaying at Alqualondë, where Thingol's Teleri kinsmen were slaughtered and their ships stolen by the followers of Fëanor. Even those Ñoldor who bore no direct responsibility for the crime felt the shame of it, and kept silence, but grew angry with the pride of the sons of Fëanor. Eventually Círdan the Shipwright learned rumor of the Kinslaying, and sent word to Thingol. Outraged, Thingol confronted Finrod Felagund with this news, and Finrod kept silent to avoid accusing his kinsmen. But his brother Angrod could not bear Thingol's blame in silence any longer. Angrily, he accused Fëanor and his sons of sole responsibility for the Kinslaying, and for the misery of the long passage of the Helcaraxë which Finarfin's kin suffered. Thingol forgave the houses of Fingolfin and Finarfin, but decreed that henceforth that Quenya, the high tongue of Aman spoken by the Ñoldor, should never again be spoken in Beleriand. In this way, the Doom of Mandos once again was proven true. Because of Thingol's decision, Sindarin became the principal language of the Elves in Middle-earth, and Quenya was rarely heard afterwards.

Lúthien fell in love with a Man named Beren. Thingol did not wish for the two to wed, as he valued his daughter very highly and disliked Men. As a bride-price he asked for a Silmaril from the crown of Morgoth, thinking there was no way that Beren could fulfil this demand. It was, however, this very bride-price that killed him. Thingol became obsessed with the Silmaril and hired some Dwarves to place it in the Nauglamír, the Necklace of the Dwarves. The Dwarven craftsmen also became obsessed with the jewel and slew Thingol for possession of it, setting off a chain of events that led to the destruction of Doriath and the scattering of its people.

Though a fairly good ruler of his kingdom, Thingol seems to have been less wise than his wife, who, being a Maia, had numerous powers, including protecting the land with the Girdle of Melian and having glimpses into the future; her involvement is probably what kept the land safe for so many years.
