Belharza, also known as Belharza the Man-Bull, was the second Emperor of the Alessian Empire. He was the son of Alessia and Morihaus, and Morihaus was said to be a Demigod in the form of a winged bull. As a result, Belharza was sometimes referred to as a "man-bull" due to being a mix of Nede and and Et'Ada Bull, thereby being the first Minotaur.[UL 2]
In 1E 266, after Empress Alessia was transformed into the first Cyrodilic Saint by Shezarr, he was crowned as the second Emperor of the Alessian Empire. It is said that during his reign as Emperor, there were several Ayleids ruling in Malada.
According to Nonus Caprenius, the Alessian Order widely persecuted minotaurs under the Empire's influence. He interprets Belharza's appearance on an ancient tablet called the Belharza Stone as referring to a conflict between Belharza and the precursors of the Alessian Order. Belharza is said to have died in combat with elves, and was succeeded by his son Ami-El.
