Uruth was an orc chieftain until 927 DR, when the shaman Wund crowned him king. His orcs instigated the Orcfastings War in 936 DR and he led them to victory in the Battle of Whirling Blades, the Battle of Sarcrag and the Battle of Withered Fields. He held Nimoar's Hold (which later became Waterdeep) under siege until it was broken at the Battle of Burning Cliffs.[1]

Subsequently, Uruth was killed in the Battle of the Westwood.[1]
