Angrod (Years of the TreesFirst Age 455) was a son of Finarfin and a lord of the Noldor. He was the elder brother of Galadriel and Aegnor, and the younger brother of Finrod Felagund. Together with Aegnor he held the highlands of Dorthonion against Morgoth. Aegnor and Angrod were both slain in the Dagor Bragollach ("Battle of Sudden Flame").

His wife was Eldalôtë, who did not join him in exile. Angrod's son was Orodreth and his grandson Gil-galad, High King of the Noldor in the Second Age.
