Jarl Elgryr the Unminded served as Jarl of Windhelm sometime during the Second Era.[1]

Rule[edit | edit source]

I don't have much time. The city has finally broken. The gates of the palace will not keep us out. The storming begins soon. I have gathered those who still have a spirit to live, and we are taking our own fortunes to hand. I hope to see you on the other side of this. Pray for us as we once prayed for you."
―Elgryr the Unminded[src]

During his reign, Windhelm was in an impoverished state. Basic necessities such as wood, coal and food were scarce, and the citizens lived in abject poverty.[1] According to some reports, Elgryr's court wizard performed strange rituals that involved painting a symbol on the door of a house within the city. The next day, anyone who lived there would be found dead. Despite these difficulties, Elgryr lived in relative comfort and seemed to do very little to help his people.[1]

Rebellion[edit | edit source]

Eventually the citizens could take no more and rebelled against the Jarl. The Palace of the Kings was stormed by an angry mob; however, it is unknown if the rebellion was successful.[1]
