Lake Rumare is a large lake completely surrounding City Isle and the Imperial City. It is connected to the sea by the Niben River, and feeds the Upper Niben to the south. It is primarily inhabited by a dangerous variety of Slaughterfish known as Rumare Slaughterfish.[1] The lake also gives its name to the Rumare Bream, a type of fish native to Cyrodiil.[2]

Many phrases in the local vernacular refer to Lake Rumare, such as "throwing money into Lake Rumare" to save time instead of "visiting that dump (the Imperial City)".

In 4E 201, a veteran of the Great War recounts that "Their fires lit up the night. All across Lake Rumare. Like stars come to earth. It was beautiful, really." No further details are given as to precisely what this means, but it can be inferred that the Thalmor may have launched some sort of naval attack on the city.[3]
