The Second House of The Noldor |
HITHLUM

Hithlum was cold and rainy, but quite fertile. The Noldor landed here in the Firth of Drengist and first camped at the shores of Lake Mithrim.

Later in the First Age, Hithlum was continually under attack by Morgoth, finally being lost after the Nírnaeth Arnoediad.

Hithlum was completely destroyed during the War of Wrath.

Finrod
and
Amarië

According to the Quenta Silmarillion, Amarië did not follow Finrod into exile. The Grey Annals add to this that she wasn’t permitted to follow
him. In the Shibboleth of Fëanor 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. 
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).

“But Caranthir, who loved not the sons of Finarfin, and was the harshest of the brothers and the most quick to anger, cried aloud: ‘Yea more! Let not the sons of Finarfin run hither and thither with their tales to this Dark Elf in his caves! Who made them our spokesmen to deal with him? And though they be come indeed to Beleriand, let them not so swiftly forget that their father is a lord of the Noldor, though their mother be of other kin.’ Then Angrod was wrathful and went forth from the council.”

― Silmarillion, J.R.R.Tolkien
