"Orsinium is a real city. It's as honest as a stone wall, it's as brutal as a hailstorm, and no matter what they burn or bash or smash, it will never ever really die."
Back Home in Orsinium[src]

Orsinium is a city in western Wrothgar, High Rock.[1] It is under the control of King Kurog gro-Orsinium.[2]

Orsinium was once a kingdom that was granted provincial status during the reign of the Second Empire.[2] The city of Orsinium is now being rebuilt and reoccupied by the Orcs of Wrothgar, to whom it was restored to after the treaty with the Daggerfall Covenant.[3] The Bretons promised the Orcs could revive Orsinium unmolested, and that once the Covenant re-established the Empire, Orsinium would once again be an Imperial province.[2]

Orsinium is a playable location as part of the Orsinium DLC, as revealed at Bethesda's press conference at E3 in 2015.[4] The official ESO Twitter tweeted a map location of Orsinium on September 27th, 2015, with the hashtag "#ReforgeOrsinium."[5] On October 5th, 2015, Orsinium was officially announced, and it was released on all platforms throughout November.[6]
