Gurhardron was a Black Numenórian of high status in service to Mordirith of Angmar. So feared and powerful was he that many believed he was the equal to Mordrambor in cunning and Mordirith in power. He was the original War-Tyrant who led the forces of Angmar into the Ettenmoors. His initial push was devastating, seizing Dâr-gazag, Lugazag and Tol Ascarnen, before driving the Coldfells Army back into Tírith Rhaw and deep into Hithlad. However, Mordirith saw seizing the Delving of Frór as a strategical advantage as it would allow the Angmarim to travel from one side of the Ettenmoors to the other wholely underground. Letting the Uruk, War-tyrant Akúlhun, take command of the Angmarim, he charged Gurhardron with cleansing the Delving. Gurhardron and his force of Angmarim Sorcerers were initially successful, however they lost many to peril until it was only Gurhardron who faced Gaergoth the Unbound. So powerful was Gurhardron that he was a match for Gaergoth and only the timely arrival of Thorliw, one of Gaergoth's most powerful minions, saw Gurhardron slain. Although his Spirit fled to Minas Morgul, his corpse was inhabitated by a fell spirit, as a mockery to Angmar's greatest general.
