Nalgis Crag was a formidable clan stronghold in northwestern Makuran. The most recent domain-leader was Pradtak.
During the Times of Troubles of Makuran, the real heir to the throne, Sharbaraz, was kidnapped and imprisoned in this stronghold by the usurper, Smerdis, until he was freed by his future wife Denak and his future Marshal Abivard.
After being defeated and having Mashiz taken away from him, Smerdis fled to Nalgis Crag and Sharbaraz had no choice but to besiege him.But instead of attacking the formidable fort-like structure, Shabaraz burnt every village and field outside of the stronghold, thus damaging Pradtak's domain.
Pradtak soon surrendered Smerdis, who was soon executed.
