Ada'Soom Dir-Kamal, also spelled Ada'Soon Dir-Kamal,[1] was the King of Kamal, a nation of Akavir. In 2E 572, he led an army of his people in an invasion of Tamriel, reportedly in search of a person or object roughly translated as the "Ordained Receptacle".[2] Dir-Kamal's army landed in Skyrim near the city of Windhelm, which they subsequently besieged and sacked.[3] Wulfharth, the Underking, was summoned to help repel the invasion of the "Akaviri demon" (sources differ on who summoned him).[3][4] Dir-Kamal decided to bypass Riften and retreat from Skyrim, instead setting his sights on Mournhold. The Nords refused to let him get away and pursued him into Morrowind, where his army was crushed between them, a Dunmer army led by Almalexia, and a third force of Argonian Shellbacks.[3] Remnants of Dir-Kamal's army survived this battle and resurfaced years later in Cyrodiil, where they seized the Imperial Throne from the successors of the Emperor Attrebus.[5]
