Finrod, son of Finarfin, was a Noldorin prince who met Amarië in Valinor. Although in love with one another, they did not marry, and Amarië did not follow Finrod into exile to Beleriand. According to The Grey Annals, this was because she was not permitted. Following Finrod's death at the hands of Sauron during the Quest for the Silmaril, he was brought back to life and lives with Amarië in Valinor.

Originally Finrod had a wife named Meril who went into exile and bore the child Gil-galad who were both sent to dwell in the Havens of the Falas for their safety. This was later changed so Finrod had no child - with Gil-galad becoming the son of Orodreth, Finrod's nephew - and Amarië remaining in Aman.
