Fíriel was the daughter of King Ondoher of Gondor, and she was wed to Prince Arvedui of Arnor during a time when Arvedui's father Araphant made an alliance with Ondoher. The alliance proved fruitless, however, as neither side could send help to the other, both Kingdoms being under attack: Arnor by Angmar, and Gondor by the Wainriders.

During the Battle of the Camp, Ondoher and his sons Artamir and Faramir were killed, which meant that according to the Law of Númenor, Fíriel was now the Ruling Queen. Arvedui used this, as well as the fact that he was a direct descendant of Isildur, as an argument to claim the crown of Gondor, but was refused.

Fíriel remained with her husband in the north, and when Arthedain was destroyed by Angmar she probably fled with her son Aranarth to Lindon.
