[[File:Uruks3.jpg|thumb|346px|Fighting Uruk-Hai]]The '''Uruk-Hai''' or '''Black Uruks''' were the most feared and formidable breed of the [[greater Orcs]]. The Breed was first introduced by [[Sauron]] in 2475 TA when Black Uruks of [[Mordor]] assaulted [[Ithilien]]. Later however during the [[war of the ring]] an improved breed of [[Uruk]] was introduced by [[Saruman]]. Predecessors and Prototypes of the Uruk-Hai Breed however were employed on and off long before, [[Great Goblin]]s and Huge Orcs as [[Azog]] and [[Bolg]] were often thought to have been descendants of these early Kû-Uruks.[[File:Uruks.jpg|thumb|Uruk-Hai in LOTRO]]

==Speculations==
 
 
The Uruk-Hai may have been bred out of captured and magically altered [[Dúnedain]] and [[Black Númenoreans]].
 
<nowiki> </nowiki>Alternatively, they could be the much worn-down descendants of Boldogs, having been bred with ordinary Orcs so many times that they were shadows of their ancestors. They could also be a combination of the two, being descended from both the [[Black Númenoreans|Númenoreans]] and Boldogs. In fact, considering how different the Uruk-hai of Isengard seem to be from the Uruk-hai of Mordor (one example being that the Uruk-hai of Isengard cannot see as well during daylight), it's possible that different Uruk-hai have different amounts of diverse ancestry, For example, the Isengard Uruk-hai are perhaps more human in ancestry, or at least ''less magically altered'' human ancestry (in contrast from Uruk-hai who are presumably descended from either magically altered humans, Boldogs, or both), which may suggest that Isengard Uruk-hai aren't in fact pure Uruk-hai, if there were even such a thing, and would count more as Dur-Edan half-Orcs.
