Angrod was the elder brother of Galadriel, and the son of Finarfin. With his brother Aegnor, he held Dorthonion and was later lost in the Dagor Bragollach*.

* Tolkien later made Orodreth the son of Angrod, thus making Angrod the grand-father of Gil-galad. For more information on Tolkien's later ideas, please see the "related link" above.
