A tribe of Angaraks, Murgos were the noble class of Cthol Mishrak. They moved into Cthol Murgos during the great Angarak Migration, and are one of the two dominant Angarak factions, with the other being the Malloreons. They were ruled for most of their existence by Ctuchik, and their kings were mostly just military leaders.
The word "Murgo" meant nobleman or warrior.
Murgo gold is blood red or bright red, and calls to its own. Very few owners of Murgo gold resist the feeling that he (or she) can never have enough.
Notable Murgo Kings
- Ad Rak Cthoros - king during the Battle of Vo Mimbre, last member of the Cthan dynasty.
- Taur Urgas - King during the Belgariad, insane member of the Urga dynasty.
- Urgit - King during The Malloreon. Very shrewd, he began making steps towards Angarak-Alorn reconciliation and was a supporter of Eriond's religious reformation. Only sane member of the Urga dynasty, as he was really the half-brother of Prince Kheldar.
