Is there any indication anywhere that the Orcs are aware that the Lich King is half made up of Nerzhul?Everyone addresses and refers to him as Arthas but he really isn't technically Arthas. I am on the alliance side so I don't know if there is any indication on the horde side of whether or not anyone is aware.

Technically according to Ozzy Osborne the Lich King is the Prince of Darkness (or not) I dont think too many people care that its really Nerhzul inhabiting the re-animated flesh formerly known as Prince Arthas.

I don't know if it's ever explicitly stated in-game, but it's very likely. The Forsaken were all once part of the Scourge, and we know of at least one member of the Scourge with enough of a mind to know about Ner'Zhul and tell someone about it: Kel'Thuzad, who told the story to Arthas while he was a Death Knight. So it's very possible that some of the undead who joined the Forsaken also knew. Varimathras definitely knew, and I don't see why he would have kept it to himself. I guess it's possible that Thrall has a conspiracy to keep that information secret to keep the orcs from getting blamed for the Scourge as well as everything else they did during the previous wars, but it would be a very tough secret to keep.
