"Legend says that my forefather Lenne discovered the mines after he stumbled into a dark cave to relieve himself. Too much mead. Of course, there's another version of the story of Lenne losing the family shield in a different cave, so it depends on who you believe."
Roggi Knot-Beard[src]

Find Roggi Knot-Beard's Ancestral Shield is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in which the Dragonborn must recover an ancestral shield belonging to Roggi Knot-Beard from a dungeon.


  1. Find Roggi Knot-Beard's Ancestral Shield in the dungeon
  2. Return Roggi Knot-Beard's Ancestral Shield to Roggi


Roggi Knot-Beard, in Kynesgrove, asks the Dragonborn to find his ancestral shield. After the shield is returned, Roggi teaches the Dragonborn "some blocking techniques" that adds one to Block; additionally, Roggi becomes available as a follower and as a spouse.

  • Roggi tells the story about how his relative/ancestor stumbled into a cave and lost the ancestral shield and asks the Dragonborn to help him retrieve it.
  • The shield's location is random, depending on where Roggi tells the Dragonborn to find it.
