Belharza as a child[UL 1]

Belharza was born sometime during the early First Era, as the firstborn child of Alessia and Morihaus.[UL 1]

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.[1] It is said that during his reign as Emperor, there were several Ayleids ruling in Malada.[3]

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.[1] Belharza is said to have died in combat with elves,[4] and was succeeded by his son Ami-El.

TriviaEdit
