Eastmarch is one of the nine Holds of Skyrim, located along the eastern border. It is one of the four oldest holds in Skyrim, known collectively as Old Holds.[1] The major city of Eastmarch is Windhelm, near the northern border. Ulfric Stormcloak is the Jarl of Windhelm and Eastmarch. The coat of arms is a bear's head.

The Dragonborn can receive the title "Thane of Eastmarch" upon completing a series of quests and buying the house Hjerim in Windhelm.

Description[edit | edit source]

Eastmarch covers much of Skyrim's eastern border with Morrowind. The surrounding holds are Winterhold to the north, The Pale and Whiterun to the west and The Rift to the south. Central/south Eastmarch is a volcanically active area, plains with steaming gas leaking in between cracks in the ground, colorful, mineral filled bodies of water, and geysers. The far west of the hold resembles much of the rest of central Skyrim, and to the north a mountainous tundra, where the hold's capital Windhelm lies. The east is composed of the Velothi mountain range, which extends down to the Rift. The province's border with Morrowind can be accessed by road a short walk up the mountains from Windhelm, though the border cannot be crossed.
