Lore:Uriel Septim II
|Emperor Uriel Septim II|
|Next Ruler||Pelagius Septim II|
|Resided in||Imperial City|
Uriel Septim II became the fifth Emperor of Tamriel after the death of Uriel I in 3E 64. Tragically, the rule of Uriel II was cursed with blights, plagues, and insurrections the likes of which wouldn't be seen again until the reign of his grandson Emperor Antiochus. His tenderheartedness inherited from his father did not serve Tamriel well, and little justice was done. He had two sons, Pelagius and Amiel, and a daughter named Princess Galana, who was originally promised to King Mantiarco of Solitude, but secretly married the Duke of Narsis instead. This prompted her father to promise Galana's niece, Potema to the King in order to avoid bad feelings between the kingdom of Solitude and the Imperial family.
Uriel II died in 3E 82 after 18 years of rule, a year after the wedding of his 14-year-old granddaughter the Princess Potema to King Mantiarco of the Nordic kingdom of Solitude, and was succeeded by his son, Pelagius II, to whom he left many problems due to his poor financial and judicial management. He was a character in the popular historical fiction The Wolf Queen.
