Description[edit | edit source]
It is the ruins of the ancient city on which the whole of Mournhold was later built. It is a large complex of underground tunnels and ancient ruins located under the city of Mournhold in Morrowind. Old Mournhold can be accessed from many trapdoors throughout the city. It is a very large labyrinthine series of sewers, tunnels, tombs and ruins. Several groups of assassins, bandits, Goblins and undead can be found within.
History[edit | edit source]
Old Mournhold, being built under Mournhold, is said to be built over even older Dwemer Ruins and Daedric shrines. At one point, mainland Ebonheart and Mournhold were a combined city-state. It was ruled by Clan Ra'athim, whose royal house held the High Kingship of Morrowind. It was then split into the two separate city-states when Queen Lian's twin sons were left as joint heirs.
During the end of the First Era, Mournhold was known to be the capital of Morrowind. The Royal City of Old Mournhold was destroyed in 1E 2920 by the Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon. Almalexia and Sotha Sil were too late to prevent its destruction, although, they succeeded in banishing Mehrunes Dagon back to Oblivion.
