(??? – II 3434)

Amdír was a Sindarin Elf of Doriath, he left east into Eriador after the War of Wrath. He took over the realm of Lórinand (later Lórien) from Silvan Elves who had had no lords before, near where Oropher established a realm among the Silvan Elves of Mirkwood. Amdír was the father of Amroth.

He was killed in the Battle of Dagorlad, when he was cut from the main body of the Last Alliance and forced to the Dead Marshes.

In one source, Amroth's father is inconsistently named as Malgalad.
