Thane of Whiterun is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The Dragonborn can gain the title of Thane of Whiterun. This quest only becomes available if the Dragonborn sides with the Stormcloaks during the civil war.
- Assist five citizens of Whiterun.
- Purchase Breezehome.
- Return to the Jarl.
Siding with the Stormcloaks in the Civil War places Vignar Gray-Mane on the throne as Jarl of Whiterun and the Dragonborn's status as Thane is revoked. To become a Thane again, the Dragonborn must assist five citizens of Whiterun and purchase Breezehome (if this has not already been done). Speak to Vignar after he is promoted to Jarl about becoming a Thane. He will award a Blade of Whiterun and grant them the title of Thane again.
