King of the Noldor

An equivalent title to 'High King of the Noldor', but somewhat less common. It was originally borne by Finwë, and passed down through his descendants to Gil-galad.

However, the term "High King" is only used for a king who rules several other petty-kingdoms. By that definition only Fingolfin, Fingon, Turgon and Gil-galad could claim that title.
