The province of Valenwood

Arenthia is a city in northeastern Valenwood, situated on the banks of the Strid River, close to the borders of Cyrodiil and Elsweyr.[1] In 2E 582, the city was invaded by Colovians under General Lavina.[2] It was also reputedly the place where the Camoran Usurper first began his war of conquest, collecting a huge army of daedra and undead before first attacking Valenwood, then Hammerfell and High Rock.[3] It is named after the first king of the Bosmer.[4] The city produces a vintage red wine known throughout Tamriel.[5]


  • Arena was originally conceived as a fighting game featuring a tournament that took the player to each of Tamriel's cities to challenge different gladiatorial teams. According to a file from that stage of development left behind in the final game, Arenthia's gladiatorial team would have been called "the Huntsmen".[oog 1]
