"Hanse was in line to be High King of Skyrim, you know."
Jarl Korir[src]

Jarl Hanse was ruler of Winterhold around the time High King Borgas died in 1E 369.

A Moot was held to determine the successor to Borgas and it was said that Hanse was the obvious choice for succession. However, the Moot's failure to appoint him High King ultimately led to the War of Succession.[1]

He wore the Helm of Winterhold during his reign.[2]
