The area in which Alcaire was found

Alcaire was a Third Era fiefdom on the south-central coast of High Rock, on the north shore of Iliac Bay. Shortly before the Warp in the West, it was ruled from the city of Alcaire,[1] and bordered Koegria to the west, the Wrothgarian Mountains to the north, and Menevia to the east.[2] Following the Warp, it became part of the kingdom of Wayrest.[3] The regional deity was Kynareth.[1]

Alcaire celebrated Tibedetha (middle Tamrielic for "Tiber's Day") on the 24th of Mid Year, honoring its most famous son, Tiber Septim, with a great party[4][5] It is said that one Hjalti Early-Beard was born within its borders, and that Hjalti would go on to become Tiber Septim.[6][7] Despite this, it is also said that the Emperor never returned once to his beloved birthplace.[5]

Notes[edit]

  • The region shares its name and approximate geographical location with the Second Era Stormhaven duchy of Alcaire.
  • In the Skyrim quest The Ghost of Old Hroldan, the eponymous ghost holds a dialogue with "Hjalti", and makes reference to the time they spent together as students of "the sword masters of Alcaire".
  • Despite being referred to as an "island kingdom" in The Arcturian Heresy, Alcaire was ruled by a lord. It was also located on the mainland.
