The Bjoulsae River circa 2E 582

The Bjoulsae River is a major river that forms most of the border between Hammerfell and High Rock. It is the home of the River Horse Bretons, the nomadic tribes of Bretons.[1]

Its source lies roughly south of the High Rock city of Raven Spring and northwest of Hammerfell's Heldorn Mount—about two thirds of the way along the border between the two provinces. The Viridian Lake of Bangkorai and Jugular River of Wrothgar feed into it from the south and north respectively. It flows through the Halcyon Lake and passes the city of Evermore. It finally enters the sea at the eastern end of the Iliac Bay, near Wayrest.[2][3] At its mouth, periodic flood plains provide rich soil for agriculture.[4]

Racing rowboats up and down the Bjoulsae River is a popular pastime activity.[5]


In 2E 541, a horde of Reachmen, led by Durcorach the Black Drake, crossed the Bjoulsae and began the Siege of Wayrest.[6]

The Yrinthi River empties into the Bjoulsae, providing a navigable route from the interior of Tamriel to the Abecean Sea via the Iliac Bay. This was the route taken by an agent of the Blades in 3E 405, sent by Emperor Uriel Septim VII on a mission which culminated in the Warp in the West.[7]
