Mauhúr was an Uruk-hai of Isengard in the late Third Age during the War of the Ring.

BiographyEdit

Mauhúr was sent to reinforce Uglúk and the Uruk-hai Scouts as they returned to Isengard with Merry and Pippin. He found them surrounded by Éomer's Rohirrim Éored at the edge of Fangorn Forest, from which he led his Orcs in an attack. This attack was a failure: the Rohirrim were able to defeat the Orcs, even with Mauhúr's reinforcements. Though Mauhúr's own fate isn't known with absolute certainty, it is assumed that he was among those killed at the hands of the Rohirrim.[1][2]

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

Mauhúr in the Two Towers film

In the Peter Jackson film The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002), Mauhúr was an Uruk-hai captain in the company that was sent to accompany Ugluk and the Uruk-hai Scouts as they returned with Merry and Pippin. His company was one night surrounded by a group of Rohirrim, led by Éomer. When the Uruk-hai attacked, the Rohirrim rode to meet them in a bloody battle where many Orcs were slaughtered. Mauhúr perished with the other Orcs in the ensuing battle, and the head impaled on a pike seen the following morning is apparently his. (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002))

Ralph Bakshi's The Lord of the RingsEdit

In Ralph Bakshi's animated film The Lord of the Rings, Mauhúr was one of two Orcs that guard the Hobbits. (The Lord of the Rings (Animated, 1978))
