Description

Dulgabêth, the Black Word (translated from Adûnaic) is one of the Gúrzyul, Black Númenóreans given indefinite lifespans by Sauron.[1] He is the Mouth of Sauron and the Lieutenant of the Tower of Barad-dûr. Dulgabêth is not the name he was born with, for that has long been forgotten.[2] He has in his service an order of red-robed knights, often called Vile Knights or Knights of Dulgabêth.[3][4]

He is the author of the text The Nazgûl, which tells how the titular wraiths came into being.[5]
