–Murgash to Gothmog, before Grond is used against the Gate of Minas Tirith

Murgash was a Black Uruk captain or lieutenant serving under Gothmog during the Siege of Gondor.

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

LOTR film trilogyEdit

Murgash is portrayed by Sala Baker. In the extended edition, he first appears alongside Guritz on the Pelennor Fields, and again at the gates of Minas Tirith, where he told Gothmog that the gates are impenetrable, though Gothmog rectified this dilemma by using the "Wolf's Head", which is Grond. Murgash is later seen with Guritz and his battalion at the docks (the harlond), mocking the Corsairs of Umbar, who apparently are late for battle. Their sarcasm turned to terror when Aragorn and his two companions and the Army of the Dead swarmed off the ships and charged the orcs head-on. Despite the obvious futility of even attempting to fight back, Murgash lunged at Aragorn with a sword, only to have his head cut off.
