  • So we all know the Fourth Legion is the Legion stationed in Skyrim correct? But can someone give me a quote or something that says it's the Fourth?

    • No, it's speculation. Nothing states it's the fourth, only that it's one of the 4 the empire has left. The other three are tied up at the border to Valenwood.

      The amount of legions does not say which Legion it is.

      For example, the Seventh Legion was destroyed during the invasion of Akavir, but the Eight fought in the Great War, the amount of Legions remaining isn't equal to the Legion number.

    • ^ Dude, that's what I said. It's one of the four the empire had left. We get no indication that the Fourth is in Skyrim, only that it's one of the 4 the empire has left.

      But why name it the Fourth than? Wouldn't naming it one of the four Legions be better?

      I said it's the one of the four legions the empire has left, not that it's the fourth legion.

    • You're entirely correct Jauffre. The Fourth Legion has nothing to do with Skyrim, and was in fact involved in a First Era conflict in Black Marsh called the Blackwater War. Read The Blackwater War books for more information about this. Thank you very much for bringing this to my attention.

      You're more than welcome Atvel, things such as this should be looked into with most care, I'm glad to help in any way I can whenever I can.

    • And where ever it is said about the number of Skyrim Legion or about how many Legions ar there left in the Empire?

      Nowhere, which is exactly why I posted this thread.

      But we can get a rough assumption of how many Legions exist. Assuming there were a total of 18 at the start of the GW, and 3 entire Legions died, leaves us with 15. Of those 15, half were unfit for duty, leaving us with 7,5. The Legion in Skyrim is entirely locally recruited, meaning a total of 8,5 Legions exist.

    • Thanks for your respond. And so where did you get information there were exactly 18 complete Legions during the war?

      Well, that's if we assume there are a total of 18. There is an 18th recorded Legion, so my bet is that there were a total of 18 Legions.

    • I'm doubting that there's only four Legions left.  They definitely have at least 9 or 10.

      Or even twelve, assuming that their legions are the size of RL Marian/Augustan legions (5,400 men on average).

      Heck, even during the Fourth Century A.D, when Rome was on a severe decline, the empire mananged to field around 350,000 soldiers divided into border (limitanei) and mobile (comitatenses) legions. (Granted, a huge chunk of those were foedarati/mercenaries who's primary loyalty was to their coin purse, and another chunk of them were poorly trained and led)

      Yeah, I did the maths a few comments ago, not 4, according to what we know it should be either 7,5 or 8,5.
