Apes are the rulers of the planet of Ashlar. The apes first came to the planet along with the humans when the space station Oberon crashing to its surface due to a giant electromagnetic storm, killing half the crew.
With no way of getting off the Ashlar or contacting Earth for aid, the survivors decided to build a settlement and increased the genetic manipulation of the apes so they could do manual labor and to combat the hostile lifeforms that threatened them. This backfired, however, as an ape called Jonathan lead a bloody revolt against the humans, killing most of them. Jonathan, now called Semos, led the apes and the humans he enslaved out of the ruins of Oberon. He later became worshiped as the God of the Apes and was prophesied to return to Calima, a place within the ruins of Oberon, now called the Forbidden Zone.
Relationships between the apes and humans improved a bit after a time-displaced former Oberon scientist, Leo Davidson, led a revolt against the apes with some ape supporters. After Leo left Ashlar in order to get back to Earth, however, tensions began to rise once again as some ape factions began to resist human equality, however thanks to a coalition of apes and humans they were defeated, and lasting peace was finally brought between the two races.
Years later, the apes developed a society similar to that of modern humans and ape General Thade was hailed as a hero for allowing apes to take over.

Battle vs. Uruk-hai (by The Deadliest Warrior)
Uruk-Hai: General Thade and four gorilla warriors are trekking through a dark forest. Suddenly they hear rustling and the Uruk-Hai leader Lurtz and four Uruk-Hai foot soldiers run in their path. Lurtz challengingly spits in Thade's direction, and Thade only nods before the gorillas leap high into the air and come down with their hand scythes, beating down Lurtz and several other Uruk-Hai to the ground. The gorillas unleash hell with their vicious attacks and manage to kill one Uruk-Hai. The rest of the Uruk-Hai stand up, though, and Lurtz kills his attacker with his sword.
The gorillas back up, spears in hand, and turn to see that their General is nowhere in sight. One Uruk-Hai raises a pistol and fires at point-blank range, dropping one of the primates. Thade's troops throw their spears and impale several of the Uruk-Hai, but only one falls. The other orcs lumber forward awkwardly with the weapons still sticking straight through them.
Thade suddenly pops up and rallies his men as Lurtz staggers back in surprise. Thade takes careful aim with his hunting rifle and shoots Lurtz right between the eyes, killing the orc leader instantly. This seems counter-productive almost instantly, because instead of the orcs retreating under their leader's death, they instead go wild and charge the gorillas with their swords. Thade scowls and turns to escape when he stes on a land mine, blowing the general sky-high.
The last two gorillas, seeing their leader fall, have the opposite reaction of the orcs and panic. As they flee, one stops the other and takes out his bow, draws an arrow, and sets fire to it. His partner does the same, and as the Uruk-Hai storm the claring, the apes let fire fly. One of the Uruk-Hai falls and his corpse roasts in the flames. However, the last Uruk-Hai, spear through his belly and head aflame, walks over to the two gorillas and grabs them by their necks before he smashes their heads together with such force he kills them both. Not knowing what to do now, the stupid brute sits down on the floor, surrounded by corpses, and scratches his rear.
Weapon-wise and leader-wise, the apes had the advantage. However, the orcs prevailed because of their unrelenting strength and durability.
