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

The King or Queen of Morrowind is the sovereign leader of Morrowind. Governing the province, those holding this office become a member of the Elder Council of the Empire of Tamriel. Traditionally, the King of Morrowind was based in Mournhold, as it was the first capital city established by Tiber Septim and Queen Barenziah in the late Second Era. However, following 4E 6, the capital moved to Blacklight.


The King or Queen of Morrowind was put in place by Tiber Septim in order to maintain a central governing hand in the province. The King or Queen typically inherits the throne by birth and rules for life or until abdication. The King swears fealty to the Emperor.
