Amarië

Location(s): Valinor, Tirion?

Race/Species: Elf

Type/Kind: Vanyar

Dates: Age of the Trees

Spouse: beloved of Finrod Felagund

Description:
According to the Quenta Silmarillion, Ch. 15, Of the Noldor in Beleriand, Amarië did not follow Finrod into exile. The Grey Annals (War of the Jewels, HoMe 11) add to this that she wasn't permitted to follow him. In the Shibboleth of Fëanor (The Peoples of Middle Earth, HoMe 12), we read that 'Finrod left his wife in Valinor and had no children in exile'. No name is given here, but it seems likely that this refers to to Amarië. Whether 'no children in exile' means they did have children in Valinor remains a matter of conjecture.
After his death Finrod went to the Halls of Mandos, 'but it is said that released soon from Mandos, he went to Valinor and there dwells with Amarië (Grey Annals, see above).
