Grahtwood, also known as the Kingdom of Grahtwood,[1] is a zone in the southeast of Valenwood. Its capital, the massive tree-city of Elden Root, with King Camoran Aeradan on the throne, serves as the capital of the Aldmeri Dominion, hidden away in the impenetrable jungle full of huge graht-oak trees.

Background[]

"This region is the southern heart of the Wood Elves' great forest, and home to more of the gigantic graht-oaks than any other part of Valenwood. Its capital, now also the capital of the entire Aldmeri Dominion, is Elden Root."
Loading screen[src]

The capital of Grahtwood, Elden Root, has served as the capital city of the Aldmeri Dominion since its founding and was simultaneously made the provincial capital of Valenwood by the Thalmor.[2] During the Planemeld in 2E 582, parts of Grahtwood suffered attacks from the Daedra which included the total destruction of Gil-Var-Delle.[3][4][5]

The region, predominantly populated by native Bosmer populations, also features various Orsimer strongholds, locally referred to as Wood Orcs and considered distinct from typical Orsimer,[6] who frequently fend off attacks by organised bandits[7] as well as Ayleid ruins long since abandoned by their creators.[3] Separate from the native Bosmer and Orsimer are populations of Imperials in and around the city of Southpoint that was founded by the Second Empire.[1] During the Alliance War, a group of Argonians left Black Marsh by sea and made landfall in Grahtwood, creating the Gray Mire.[8] Despite the people of the Gray Mire initially considering attacking local Dominion forces, the Dominion tolerated their presence.[9] Khajiit traders also have a presence in the north of the region at Redfur Trading Post, established by Khajiit from Senchal in Southern Elsweyr.[10]
