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


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]


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]


He is mentioned in Black Book: The Winds of Change.
