One of the princes of the Noldorin Elves, Finarfin was the third son of Finwë. His mother was Indis. He has been called by many, the fairest and wisest of the sons of Finwë. Though he initially followed his brother, Fëanor on his march into Middle-Earth, Finarfin turned back, leading many of the Noldor with him. On his return to Valinor, he became the High King of the Noldor. He led his people in the Great Battle where Morgoth was overthrown.
Galadriel and Finrod Felagund were the two best known of Finarfin's five children. The other three do not appear to be named.
