The timeline page is a record of all notable events known to occur in The Elder Scrolls universe.


"Time. Time is an artificial construct. An arbitrary system based on the idea that events occur in a linear direction at all times. Always forward, never back. Is the concept of time correct? Is time relevant?"

The various historical periods throughout the existence of Aurbis are differentiated into various 'eras', each of arbitrary length according to the conclusions of significant political occurrences such as the end of a monarchic dynasty (see the Second Era and the Fourth Era) or the conquering and unification of societies into a single governmental sovereignty (see the First Era and Third Era).[1]

The five past eras as well as the current can be separated into prehistoric and modern eras according to when civilizations began to record and document significant events. Exact dates of events that occurred in the Dawn Era and the Merethic Era cannot be known as such information does not exist due partly to a lack of record keeping by the then extant societies and mostly due to the partial absence of established chronological systems (calendars, periods, etc.). Thus, such eras are prehistoric and the occurrence of events during these eras can only be approximated with various degrees of uncertainty.[1] Events occurring in the eras following the Merethic Era, however, often have exact dates or years due to the prevalence of record keeping and the development of a quasi-universal system of chronology. Thus, such eras are modern.[UL 1]

Prehistoric eras

  • Dawn Era – The Dawn Era begins with the existence of Anu and Padomay. Aurbis begins to exist during the first period of discernible time. Later follow Mundus and Oblivion as separate realms from Aetherius. Auriel and Lorkhan war against each other during this time, after the Aedra are tricked by the latter into creating Mundus. The era ends with the condemnation of Lorkhan for the creation of Mundus.[2]
  • Merethic Era – Linear time can finally be discerned, and the Merethic Era begins in ME 2500 with the construction of the Adamantine Tower following the defeat of Lorkhan and the subsequent creation of Red Mountain. The Elven races thrive during this time, as the Aldmer explore northern Tamriel and the Ayleids establish a sprawling empire in the heart of the continent. The era finally ends in ME 1, with the founding of the Camoran Dynasty.[3]

Modern eras

Dawn Era

  • The brothers Anu and Padomay enter into the Void.
  • Anu and Padomay create their own Souls, Anui-El and Sithis, respectively, whose interplay creates the Aurbis.
  • Lorkhan and Auri-El are the first spirits born into the Aurbis, Lorkhan wanders and Auriel creates time.
  • The Original Spirits or et'Ada emerge within the Aurbis are either aligned with Anu (Anuic spirits) or Padomay (Padomaic spirits).
  • Lorkhan, a Padomaic spirit, travels the Aurbis and conceives the concept that Mundus should be created.
  • Lorkhan tricks or convinces other et'Ada to join him. Those that do become the Aedra and those that do not become the Daedra.
  • The Aedra create twelve worlds of creation. Some creation myths believe each world is a God. These twelve worlds are molded together to create Nirn.
  • Many of the Aedra die during the creation with some becoming mortals to ensure the continuation of life on Mundus whilst some become the Ehlnofey or "Earthbones," the Laws of Nature.
  • Many of the Aedra, following after Magnus, flee back to Aetherius, a realm within the Aurbis, and become the Magna Ge, tearing holes in Oblivion.
  • Auri-El establishes the first kingdoms of the Old Ehlnofey on Atmora and the supposed land Aldmeris. These lands are where the Aldmer originate.
  • A large number of Aedra are disappointed and angry with the creation of Mundus and seek revenge. These include the ancestors of Elves—the Old Ehlnofey, whose leader was Auri-El and whose heroes included Trinimac, Phynaster and Syrabane.
  • Auri-El sought out Lorkhan in battle and warred with him. Lorkhan's followers included the ancestors of Man—the Wandering Ehlnofey and whose heroes included Kyne, Tsun, Stuhn, Jhunal.
  • Atmora is conquered by the armies of Man.
  • The war ends when Trinimac tears Lorkhan's heart out and Auri-El fires it into the sea with his bow.
  • The war causes the mega-continent on Nirn to become flooded and fracture into smaller continents and islands.
  • The lands inhabited by the Wandering Ehlnofey, which include Akavir, Atmora, and Yokuda, become isolated. These lands are where the Tsaesci, Atmorans and Yokudans originate.
  • Some Wandering Ehlnofey remain on Tamriel, they become the Nedes.
  • The Old Ehlnofey remain on the supposed land Aldmeris and become the Aldmer.

Merethic Era

Merethic timeline provided by the Imperial Library

Circa ME 2500

Early Merethic Era

  • Aboriginal beastpeoples (ancestors of the Khajiit, Argonian, and other beastfolk) live in preliterate communities throughout Tamriel.

Middle Merethic Era

  • The Aldmer leave the supposed doomed and now-lost continent of Aldmeris (also known as 'Old Ehlnofey') and settle in Tamriel. First colonies are distributed widely along the entire coast of Tamriel. Later, inland settlements were founded primarily in fertile lowlands in southwest and central Tamriel.
  • The sophisticated, literate, and technologically advanced Aldmeri culture drive the primitive beastfolk into the jungles, marshes, mountains, and wastelands.
  • The Adamantine Tower is rediscovered and captured by the Direnni, a prominent and powerful Aldmeri clan. Crystal Tower is built on Summerset Isle and, later, White-Gold Tower is built by the Ayleids in Cyrodiil.
  • One of these Aldmeri Explorers, Torval the Pilot, explores and charts Tamriel sea-lanes and the River Niben, located in southern Tamriel. He sails deep into central Cyrodiil, and acquires the Eight Islands (the site of White Gold Tower) from the beastfolk natives in exchange for the secret of literacy.
  • Aldmeri explorers map the coasts of Vvardenfell, building the First Era High Elven wizard towers at Ald Redaynia, Bal Fell, Tel Aruhn, and Tel Mora in Morrowind.
  • The Ayleids flourish in the jungles surrounding White-Gold Tower (present day Cyrodiil). Ayleids, also known as the Heartland High Elves, preserved the Dawn Era magic and language of the Ehlnofey.
  • Ostensibly a tribute-land to the High King of Alinor, Cyrodiil was often so isolated from the Summerset Isles as to be its own sovereign nation.

Late Middle Merethic Era

  • The Dwemer, a free-thinking, reclusive Elven clan devoted to the secrets of science, engineering, and alchemy, established underground cities and communities in the mountain range (later the Velothi Mountains) separating modern Skyrim and Resdayn/Morrowind.
  • The Late Middle Merethic Era is also the period of the High Velothi Culture.
  • The Chimer (ancestors of the modern Dunmer, or Dark Elves), dynamic, ambitious, long-lived Elven clans devoted to fundamentalist ancestor worship, followed the Prophet Veloth out of ancestral Elven homelands to settle in the lands now known as Morrowind.
  • Despising the secular culture and profane practices of the Dwemer, the Chimer also coveted the lands and resources of the Dwemer, and for centuries provoked them with minor raids and territorial disputes.
  • Trinimac (strongest of the Aldmeri ancestor spirits) and his people try to halt Velothi dissident movement. However, Daedric Prince Boethiah, as one of the masterminds of the movement, eats Trinimac. Trinimac's body and spirit are corrupted, and he emerges as the Daedric Prince Malacath. The rest of his people are changed as well, and became the Orsimer or the Pariah Folk.

Late Merethic Era

  • Velothi high culture disappears on Vvardenfell Island. The earliest Dwemer Freehold colonies date from this period.
  • Degenerate Velothi devolves into tribal cultures, which, in time, evolves into the modern Great Houses of Morrowind, or persists as the barbarian Ashlander tribes. The only surviving traces of this tribal culture are scattered Velothi towers and Ashlander nomads on Vvardenfell Island. The original First Era High Elven wizard towers along the coasts of Tamriel are also abandoned about this time.
  • The proto-Nords in the final migration from Atmora (also known as 'Altmora' or 'the Elder Wood' in Aldmeris) settle in northern Tamriel. The Nordic hero Ysgramor, leader of a great colonizing fleet to Tamriel, develops a runic transcription of Nordic speech based on Elvish principles, and is the first human historian.
  • Ysgramor's fleet lands at Hsaarik Head at the extreme northern tip of Skyrim's Broken Cape. There they build the legendary city of Saarthal.
  • The Elves drive the Men away during the Night of Tears, but Ysgramor soon returns with his Five Hundred Companions.

Late Merethic Era – Circa 1E 660

  • An immortal hero, warrior, sorcerer, and king variously known as Pelinal Whitestrake, Harrald Hairy Breeks, Ysmir, Wulfharth, Hans the Fox, etc., wanders Tamriel, gathering armies, conquering lands, ruling, then abandoning his kingdoms to wander again.

  • Hammerfell: The siege of Hegathe is broken. Imperial forces make a stand in Skaven to fight off the advancing Aldmeri soldiers. Skaven falls to the Aldmeri. However, the victorious Aldmeri force is severely weakened by the advance through the desert, and is unable to continue their campaign.[20]

4E 174

  • Cyrodiil: The Thalmor leadership decides to focus their forces in the Cyrodiil campaign.[20]
  • Imperial City falls to the Aldmeri forces.[20]
  • The Reach and Markarth falls to the Reachmen in The Forsworn Uprising and is ruled as an independent kingdom.[275]

4E 175

  • The Battle of the Red Ring takes place as the Empire embarks on a campaign to retake Imperial City, which fell to the Aldmeri Dominion the previous year. The battle was an Imperial victory, but not without heavy losses.[20]
  • Exhausted from war, the Empire negotiates a peace treaty and signs the White-Gold Concordat with the Aldmeri Dominion, thus ending the war. The terms of the agreements are the cession by the Empire of a large portion of southern Hammerfell to the Aldmeri Dominion, and the banning of the worship of Talos. Thus, the Great War ends.[20]
  • As a result of the White-Gold Concordat ceding portions of Hammerfell to the Aldmeri Dominion, the relationship between the Imperials of Cyrodiil and the Redguard of Hammerfell deteriorates. The Redguards, feeling betrayed by the Empire, decide to openly defy the treaty, declaring that they have absolutely no intention of surrendering any territory in Hammerfell to the Dominion, and will continue their war efforts alone if need be. To avoid getting dragged back into the war once more, the Empire is forced to renounce Hammerfell as an Imperial province.[20]
  • All the Elder Scrolls housed in the libraries of White-Gold Tower vanish, and are scattered across Tamriel by unknown means.[276]

4E 176

  • Ulfric Stormcloak and his militia retake The Reach and Markarth from the Reachmen. The surviving Reachmen flee to the hills of the Reach and became known as the Forsworn, a clan commonly known to hold a bitter hatred for Nords.[275]
  • The Stormcloaks are founded and the Skyrim Civil War breaks out.[277]

Examples of timeline conflicts

Due to the nature of history itself, sometimes dates and events come into conflict. This occurs in real life frequently, but this also occurs in The Elder Scrolls lore occasionally, too. The following are some examples where this was the case:

  1. The rule of King Harald is recorded as starting in 1E 143 and lasting for 78 years until his death in 1E 221,[33] however the Pocket Guide to the Empire, First Edition: Skyrim mentions Skyrim was under his rule in 1E 113, which was also the year of his birth: "In the 113th year of the First Era, the entirety of modern Skyrim was under the reign of King Harald." This makes it unclear if Harald was crowned High King at birth in 1E 113 or if the Pocket Guide is simply incorrect.
  2. A Dance in Fire states: "It seemed as if the palace had always housed the Atrius Building Commission, the company of clerks and estate agents who authored and notarized nearly every construction of any note in the Empire. It had stood for two hundred and fifty years, since the reign of the Emperor Magnus." [218] This would mean he was Emperor in 3E 147, which conflicts with several other reports which state that it was Pelagius Septim III at this time.
  3. Disputes surrounding the death of Kintyra II; some put it at 3E 114[204][203], while another puts it at 3E 123.[213]
  4. Disputes surrounding the date that Uriel Septim III was sworn in as Emperor.
  5. Disputes surrounding the date of the Camoran Usurper.
  6. Slight dispute about the date that the Mages Guild was created (Fighters Guild disputes the date of the "Guild Act" by one year).
  7. Some events are also results of Dragon Breaks. See that page for more details about this.
  8. The Wolf Queen, Book III states that Pelagius Septim II died at the very end of 3E 98, rather than 3E 99 as Brief History of the Empire, Book I states, and that his successor was appointed the following year.[206][9]
  9. Two books claim that Pelagius Septim II was born on 314 and 319 in the Third Empire.[citation needed]
  10. Annals of the Dragonguard has Reman Cyrodiil II's rule starting at around 1E 2806.[111] However, his tomb in Sancre Tor puts it 1E 2812.[110]
  11. Reman II: The Limits of Ambition claims that Reman Cyrodiil II dies in 1E 2843,[119] while his tomb in Sancre Tor says his death occurred in 1E 2851.[110]
  12. The death of Kintyra Septim (former Queen of Silvenar, Valenwood) is listed by some sources as 3E 48,[203] while some other sources list it as 3E 53.[33]
  13. The Third Era Timeline states Katariah died in 3E 200, but Brief History of the Empire, Book II indicates that her death was in 3E 199. However, the latter does not explicitly state the year of her death.
  14. It is generally believed that Savirien Chorak died in 2E 430,[141][47] however, one source claims that he died in 2E 431.[88]
  15. The Pocket Guides state that the Nords were pushed out of Morrowind in 1E 416,[47] however The Daggerfall Chronicles sets the year of expulsion at 1E 401.[33]
  16. High King Emeric claims that Durcorach the Black Drake led a horde of Reachmen to attack High Rock in 2E 541,[160] but the Guide to the Daggerfall Covenant claims it was in 2E 542.[162]
  17. Two different dates about Cyrus the Restless' year of birth. One claims it was in 2E 831[192] while the other claims it was in 2E 834.[49]
  18. The exact year during which Tiber Septim conquered all of Tamriel is disputed. One source claims it is in 2E 895,[49] while another[33] claims it was in 2E 896.
  19. The exact year Pelagius Septim died and Kintyra Septim was crowned is disputed. Some sources claim it was in 3E 40,[33] while others claim it was in 3E 41.[9][203] However, his reign could have easily ended in 3E 41 and still have been "less than three years" long if, in 3E 38, it began after the respective time of his death three years later in 3E 41; if this were the case, he would still have died in 3E 41 without his reign being three years long as is referenced in Brief History of the Empire, Book I.
  20. Although discoverable sources in The Elder Scrolls Online: Orsinium such as Birds of Wrothgar include references to the year 2E 583,[295] Zenimax Online Studios states that it is assumed "all events of ESO take place in 2E 582."[183]


  1. Plaque outside the Palace of the Kings: "Olaf One Eye; Reigned 1E 420–452; Subdued the foul dragon Numinex, reunited Skyrim after the War of Succession, and conquered the barbarous Reach."
  2. A tomb in Sancre Tor says: "Here lies Reman of Cyrodiil. He defeated the Akaviri Horde and brought peace to Tamriel. 2762."
  3. A tomb in Sancre Tor says: "Here lies Reman II of Cyrodiil, crowned Emperor of Tamriel in the year 2812. He fell in battle against the Dark Elves, in the fifty-seventh year of his age, after a reign of thirty-nine years and eight months wanting a day.
  4. A tomb in Sancre Tor says: "Here lies Reman III, last Emperor of the Cyrodiils, the scourge of the Dark Elves, who was cruelly slain by treachery, in the year 2920. He reigned forty-three years."
  5. 5.0 5.1 5.2 In The Daggerfall Chronicles, Lysandus is said to be born on 3E 314. Despite this, the guide also claims that both of his parents were born later than his supposed birth, in the years 319 and 336 of the Third Era. Because of this, it is not possible to determine the exact date of birth of King Lysandus.
  6. Overheard conversation in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion: "He's getting older, but he can still teach a bit about Alteration. He's been teaching it since before the Levitation Act of 421."
  7. Although the Pocket Guide to the Empire, Third Edition: Foreword claims that the pamphlet was written "one hundred and twenty one years" after the publication of the Second Edition in 3E 331, it is highly probable that the intended wording was "one hundred and one," as otherwise this would place the publication of the Third Edition in the year 3E 452, which does not exist.
  8. Ulfric mentions that he started his training with the Greybeards when he was just a lad, and that he stayed with them for almost 10 years before the Great War took place.
