King Glinferen
Race Ayleid Gender Male
Resided in Atatar
Atatar, the seat of Glinferen's power

King Glinferen was the last known monarch of Atatar, an Ayleid city-state in northern Blackwood. Glinferen was a Daedraphile and fought against the Aedra-worshipping Barsaebics in what would become known as the Narfinsel Schism. This conflict culminated in the Scouring of Wendelbek in 1E 198, when King Glinferen led a combined force of Daedraphile warriors against the traditionalist Barsaebics. His victory drove the Barsaebics out of the Heartlands and into inhospitable Argonia, effectively ending organized Ayleid opposition to Daedra worship in Cyrodiil.[1]

In 1E 242[2] the Alessian Slave Rebellion began when Alessia made Covenant with Akatosh to gain the favor of the Aedra.[3] In desperation, King Glinferen sent an envoy to the Barsaebic city of Twyllbek[4] in Argonia seeking aid against the Alessians. The Barsaebic king, still stininging from the humiliation of exile, bluntly refused to help.[5] These events ultimately led to the downfall of Ayleid civilization[3] and the abandonment of Atatar.[6]
