'''Holds '''are the nine administrative divisions of [[Skyrim]], different from each other both in climate and local government.
   
Each of the nine Holds is governed by a [[Jarl]] who resides in the Hold's capital city. The Jarls are largely independent, but swear fealty to Skyrim's [[High King]], who in turn swears fealty to the [[Emperor]] upon joining the Septim empire in the late [[Second Era]].

Given the independent nature of governance, crimes are tracked independently by each Hold, and a criminal who is wanted in one Hold may have no bounty in another.

[[Winterhold (Hold)|Winterhold]], [[Eastmarch]], [[The Rift]] and [[The Pale]] are known collectively as the "Old Holds," and have remained more isolated—not only from a geographic standpoint, but a political one as well, given that they are all initially aligned with the [[Stormcloaks]] during the civil war.<ref>''[[Pocket Guide to the Empire, First Edition: Skyrim]]''</ref> The Old Holds are bound together in history, as these holds were inhabited by the [[Atmoran|ancient Nords]].

[[Falkreath Hold|Falkreath]], [[Haafingar]], [[Hjaalmarch]], [[The Reach]], and [[Whiterun Hold|Whiterun]] are all known to be a part of West Skyrim. The Nords of Western Skyrim are known to be progressive and would see an influence from the Empires of [[Cyrodiil]] and other places such as [[High Rock]] or [[Hammerfell]]. These Holds tend to stick with each other in times of war such as during the [[Skyrim Civil War]] and the [[Alliance War]].
