The House of Finwë was a large Noldorin royal house founded by Finwë, King of the Noldor. Its device was that of a great golden sun, even though Finwë was slain before the Sun was made.
The House of Finwë had three main branches, one for each of Finwë's sons: the House of Fëanor, the House of Fingolfin and the House of Finarfin.
Finwë had two wives. His first was Míriel, who passed away soon after bearing their only child, Fëanor. His second wife was Indis, of the Vanyar, who bore him two sons: Fingolfin and Finarfin, and two daughters: Findis and Írimë.

Other versions of the legendarium
Finwë's two daughters don't appear in the published Silmarillion.
In earlier versions of the legendarium, Finwë and Indis had three daughters: Findis, Faniel and Finvain. It remains unclear if the third daughter survived in the final conception of Finwë's family tree.
