The House of Finarfin was the descendants and followers of Finarfin, third son of Finwë who followed Fëanor. A particular aspect of this house is that many had golden hair, due to their half-Vanyarin heritage.

During the march on Aman Finarfin himself repented when heard the Doom of the Noldor and returned to the West with some of his followers.[1]

His children, led by Finrod, came to Beleriand, and that is why his House is also named House of Finrod. Galadriel belonged to this house as well as Gildor Inglorion[2] and perhaps Glorfindel[3]. Such Elves remained in Middle-earth until the late Third Age.
