Gartopsh was the first uruk who was ever made in the Caverns of Isengard. He strangled Mugash, when Gartopsh was coming alive. Lurtz later drove him out from Isengard and became the one uruk-hai chieftain. Gartopsh escaped and later joined with Uglúk's group going to Amon Hen. He didn't fight; he hid. After the battle, he became one of two Hen-Uruk chieftains, with Gurghâsh. When king Aragorn came to Amon Hen, Gartopsh was killed and the uruks were deleted from Amon Hen.
