The state of Anequina, otherwise known as Ne Quin-al is located in the northern regions of Elsweyr, is one of the two states that existed before Keirgo of Anequina and Eshita of Pellitine combined their long-feuding kingdoms to create the Elsweyr Confederacy in 2E 309.
The Confederacy lasted throughout its assimilation into the Tamrielic Empire before being torn back into the two separate states. It was once following a Thalmor supported coup d'état. Anequina now exists as a client state of the Third Aldmeri Dominion.
The northern regions of Elsweyr are dominated by badlands and desert, a climate of which has influenced the culture of the Anequina Khajiit massively. The 'kingdom' is little more than a collection of chiefdoms in loose cooperation, but all with a common goal of preserving said culture and protecting their lands.
History[edit | edit source]
Fourth Era[edit | edit source]
After the Oblivion Crisis, the province of Elsweyr was damaged as a result of the Daedra attacks but still part of the Empire. But once the two moons, Masser and Secunda, disappeared during the Void Nights, the province was thrown into chaos, as a large part of Khajiiti culture revolves around the interpretation of the lunar cycle. The Thalmor took advantage of the return of the moons to claim that they were responsible for bringing the moons back (or they may have actually brought the moons back using Dawn Magicks), and were able to gain a large amount of influence over Elsweyr. This led to Elsweyr splitting away from the Empire and forming the two states of Pelletine and Anequina once again.
