Before the Red Year of 4E 5, the Iggnir was a large river which ran through the Hirstaang Forest and the Isinfier Plains. It ran south all the way from its source, the frozen Lake Fjalding. It was filled with horkers, who made their way from the coast and up the three rivers of Solstheim to their breeding grounds at Lake Fjalding. The Telvanni settlement of Tel Mithryn was founded west of the mouth of the river some time before 4E 5.
Following the eruption of Red Mountain, southern Solstheim slowly began to be engulfed by ash. Several decades of this resulted in the destruction of the Hirstaang Forest, and southern Solstheim was transformed into ash wastes. The Iggnir River was reduced to little more than a shallow stream. It no longer flows from Lake Fjalding, instead beginning in the northern ashlands. The native fauna fled north, and the Iggnir instead became home to several endangered Silt Striders who had been brought over from mainland Morrowind by Dunmer refugees, although they did not flourish on the island. The Emperor Parasols from Tel Mithryn also spread to the banks of the river. By 4E 201, the southern coast of Solstheim had been poisoned by the continuing ashfall, killing fish.
