 Ankh-Morpork - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ankh-Morpork lies on the River Ankh (the most polluted waterway on the Discworld), where the fertile loam of the Sto Plains (similar to Western Europe) meets the Circle Sea (the Discworld's version of the Mediterranean).
The shield is supported by two hippopotami and crested with a morpork holding an ankh.
It is in memory of this that the hippo is the royal animal of Ankh.

 Ankh-Morpork - Uncyclopedia
Ankh-Morpork acquired its interesting name following the exploits of its most famous resident, Lord Peter deMontJolly of Killykilldale, who made his home there in approximately 1300AD.
The ankh brought prosperity to the village, and the original old gits in the pub became wealthy from fleecing passing traffic.
The construction proceeded at a rate familiar to civil engineers and local planning authorities everywhere, until eventually, sometime in the early 1400s, the ankh was nearly completed.

 Ankh-Morpork City
Despite all logic, there are fish surviving in the Ankh, although the fact that they explode on contact with fresh air (if Morpork's air could be called that) they explode suggests the effects of a magical leak from Unseen University.
The city of Ankh lies to the Turnwise bank, Morpork to the Widdershins.
The city consists of two parts, Ankh and Morpork, each being on opposite sides of the River Ankh.

Its capital of commerce and political intrigue is the city-state of Ankh- Morpork.
The distant powers of Ankh- Morpork have been inconvenienced by Borogravia's antics, which include the expensive sin of cutting down the clacks towers.

His Grace the Duke of Ankh, Commander Sir Samuel Vimes was first seen lying in a gutter at the start of Guards!
It has been hinted, however, that he may have disposed of any written evidence to that fact - perhaps a King who is truly good is the scariest ruler of all.
If his forename is indeed Hrolf, he is also the dwarf who asked out Cheery, and is almost certainly male.

 Ankh-Morpork - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
According to legend, the first city of Ankh-Morpork was founded thousands of years ago by twin brothers who were raised by a hippopotamus (an allusion to the myth of Romulus and Remus).
Ankh-Morpork is also the mercantile capital of the Discworld, and the books give an excellent flavour of a "working" quasi-medieval city.
It is in memory of this that the hippo is the royal animal of Ankh.

 Ankh-Morpork Assassins' Guild - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Assassins' Guild as described in the books (especially Pyramids and the aforementioned diary) is a parody of English public schools, especially as they are portrayed in fiction.
The rules of Assassination are so utterly formalised and strict that anyone with a strategic mind, a decent budget, and a firm knowledge of their code can usually avoid death at their hands, as Sam Vimes has proved many times.
The Guild of Assassins is located in a light, airy series of buildings opposite the Guild of Fools and Joculators, which is often mistaken for it, being a far more sinister building.

 Ankh-Morpork Thieves' Guild - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Thieves' Guild moved into the long-vacated Ankh-Morpork Courthouse, and, due to their new obligation to prevent unauthorised theft, quickly became the major law-enforcement body of the city, causing the Ankh-Morpork City Watch to slide even further into the pit of depression they would remain in until Carrot Ironfoundersson's arrival.
The man was outraged at being treated as a common criminal, and was quickly released by the Patrician.
The major gang leaders of the city were therefore called to the Patrician's Palace, where they agreed to be held responsible for ensuring a socially acceptable number of thefts.
