"If there is to be a revolution, it is best done by a King."
―Helseth Hlaalu[src]

King Hlaalu Helseth is a Dunmer king who was the King of Morrowind during the events of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal.


TESIII Banner Helseth

Helseth was the first child of Queen Barenziah of Wayrest and her husband Symmachus, in 3E 376. He is the older brother of Morgiah.

Through a clever move, Helseth took the throne of Morrowind after the death of King Athyn Llethan. It had been rumored that Helseth was responsible for Llethan's death. An underground publisher released a book titled The Common Tongue, a book that told the mass that Helseth was a subtle poisoner in Wayrest. A Game at Dinner, a report by an unknown spy to a certain vampire lord, also related the story of Helseth and his cunning use of poisons.

At around the same time, the ancient goddess of Morrowind, Lady Almalexia, opposed him. She knew that Helseth, with his cunning mind, would take over Morrowind for himself, but she could not risk open war.

Then, the Nerevarine emerged. At first, Helseth saw the Nerevarine as another threat to his newly established monarchy. He hired the Dark Brotherhood to assassinate the Nerevarine. The Nerevarine proved to be mightier than any assassin the Dark Brotherhood could muster, and Helseth met the Nerevarine face to face.

Through clever manipulation, Helseth used the Nerevarine to turn the tide and eliminate all of the problems his new monarchy faced, allowing him to rule Morrowind undisputed.


He tends to be very hostile towards the Nerevarine, bordering on paranoid, and highly mistrustful. This ends when the Nerevarine has proven that he isn't a threat to Helseth's reign.
