The Nibenay Valley is a region in eastern Cyrodiil centered around the River Niben. At the southern end of the region lies Niben Bay, while to the north, the region extends into the Heartlands around Lake Rumare. South of the region lies the dark and brooding Blackwood; in the west, the West Weald and Elsweyr; to the east, the Nibenay Basin; and to the northwest, the Great Forest. Running from north to south are the Green Road in the west and the Yellow Road in the east. The city of Bravil lies in the western portion of the region.
Bergamot grows particularly densely around Bravil, as does Mandrake and Nightshade. The eastern bank of the Niben River is thick with Foxglove, Monkshood, and Summer Bolete. Many other plants thrive in the region, including Nirnroot.
Over the course of the Skyrim Conquests launched by High King Vrage the Gifted in 1E 240, the Nords expanded across northern Tamriel. By the end of the half-century campaign, the First Empire of the Nords had annexed, among other regions, a "deep stretch" of the Nibenay Valley. This territory remained under Skyrim's control until the War of Succession resulted in the collapse of the Nords' Empire by 1E 420.
