Glenumbra Moors is a small area in central Glenumbra in High Rock, best known for being the site of the famous Battle of Glenumbra Moors.[1]

The battle took place in 1E 482 between the Alessian Order and the Direnni forces.[2] Powerful individuals fought on both sides: Aiden and Raven Direnni[3], King Hoag Merkiller of Skyrim[4] and King Laloriaran Dynar of Nenalata all fought on the Direnni side, whereas the mighty werewolf Faolchu fought on the Alessian side.[1] The Alessian Order lost the battle, although the losses suffered by the Direnni are said to have led to their eventual downfall.

In 2E 582, after Angof the Gravesinger raised Faolchu, the Soulless One visited the battle site in search of a way to kill him, and traveled back in time to experience a part of the battle with the help of the Mages Guild.[1]
