Ogres are inherently stupid. Gronn were, as far as anyone can tell, the original race. They're obviously not that smart. Then they evolved, or rather devolved, into the "Ogre-Lords" - the spikey looking, cycloptic ogres. They became Ogres, as we know, and ogres eventually turned into orcs.
Orcs and ogres bred to make Mok'nathal, who are surprisingly intelligent in comparison to both orcs and ogres. And the Shadow Council experimented with ogres, giving some two heads, in order for them to have the mental capacity for arcane and dark magics. Cho'gall was the first. And not all two-headed ogres are intelligent. Even among them, a smart one is very rare.
No they aren't and Cho'Gall predated those experiments, he was the first Ogre-Magi born in centuries. his powers influenced Gul'dan to preform experiments and create artificial two headed Ogres in order to utilise their magical and physical strength
Originally from Draenor, ogres were one of the last races of Draenor's giants. Some orc scholars believe the ogres were once intelligent and the dominant species of Draenor before the orcs rose to power.from the Horde players Guide
