Urgoth was one of seven new barbaric kingdoms formed after the destruction of the kingdom of Adar.

The citadel of Urgoth was the sinister Castle Vholg. Castle Vholg was burned and abandoned long ago, and its shattered ruins are the only true evidence of this dark realm that once was. Its coat of arms consisted of a black dragon on a red field. The kingdom was eventually absorbed into the larger realm of Morgoth, after the rise of Sorimmar. The last King of Urgoth, whose true name is forgotten, became one of the seven Zûl, under his new master, Sorimmar.
