}} '''Amros''' and his twin brother [[Amrod]] were the youngest sons of [[Fëanor]]. Through their mother [[Nerdanel]] they inherited red hair, instead of Fëanor's black.
+
 
+
==History==
+
 
+
He, like his brothers, participated in the [[Flight of the Noldor]].  He was deeply attached to his twin brother, and thus they were called  "''[[Ambarussa]]''" (see below).  After his brother's death in the Ships of the [[Teleri]] at [[Losgar]], according to the ''[[Shibboleth of Fëanor]]'', he dared speak against his father, and was the last to do so.
+
 
+
{{quote|In the morning the host was mustered, but of Fëanor's seven sons only six were to be found.  Then Ambarussa went pale with fear.  'Did you not then rouse Ambarussa my brother (whom you called Ambarto?' he said.  'He would not come ashore to sleep (he said) in discomfort.'  But it is thought (and no doubt Fëanor had guessed this also) that it was in the mind of Ambarto to sail his ship back [?afterwards] and rejoin Nerdanel; for he had been much [?shocked] by the deed of his father.  That ship I destroyed first,' said Fëanor (hiding his own dismay). 'Then rightly you gave the name to the youngest of your children,' said Ambarussa, 'And ''Umbarto'' "the Fated" was its true form. Fell and fey are you become.' And after that no one dared to speak again to Fëanor of this matter.|''[[The Shibboleth of Fëanor]]''}}
+
 
+
After Fëanor's death he dwelt in the wide plains of [[East Beleriand]] and was known as a great hunter. He died during the attack made by the Sons of Fëanor on the [[Mouths of Sirion|Havens of Sirion]]
+
 
+
== Etymology ==
+
Amros' [[father-name]] was '''[[Pityafinwë]]''', or "Little Finwë", as he was the second youngest of the [[House of Finwë]]. The short form of his name was [[Pityo]], "Little One". His [[Amilessë|mother-name]] was '''[[Ambarussa]]''' ("top-russet", referring to his hair). His twin Amrod shared the same mother-name for a time (see ''[[Amrod]]'' for further information). While in [[Aman]], others called him '''[[Minyarussa]]''', which means "First-''russa''".<ref>{{VT|41b}}</ref>
+
 
+
The name ''Amros'' is the Sindarin version of ''Ambarussa''.
