Cheydinhal is a Nibenese city in eastern Cyrodiil whose architecture and culture contains heavy Dunmer influence due to its close proximity to Morrowind's border. Located in the foothills between the Valus and Jerall Mountains, Cheydinhal sits on the northeastern edge of the Nibenay Basin, a river valley of tributaries to Lake Rumare and the Niben River.
Cheydinhal consists of three districts: Cheydinhal Castle, Market, and Chapel. The dominating feature of the city is a tributary of the Corbolo River, which bisects the city from north to south. The river is crossed by three bridges: a single bridge to the north connects the Market district to the Chapel district, while two smaller bridges to the south connect the southwest plaza and Chapel via a small island park.
In the year 2E 582, after the collapse of the Second Empire, the city was seized by the local Imperial garrison. Natives of Cheydinhal, led by Sylvian Herius and Vyctoria Girien, began a rebellion against the garrison, feeling that they were tyrannical occupiers. Throughout this occupation the city was divided between the two parties, with the Imperial Legion controlling the Chapel District and the rebels controlling the Market District. Passing soldiers from the alliances aided the rebellion against the legion, however the outcome of the rebellion is unknown.
An Oblivion Gate opened outside the city during the Oblivion Crisis, however the Champion of Cyrodiil and the Knights of the Thorn entered the gate and destroyed it. With the gate shut, Count Andel Indarys contributed to the defense of Bruma by sending soldiers there.
