Selene's Web is a region of Valenwood ruled over by Selene, an ancient Changeling and the High Priestess of Shagrath, God of Spiders. The exact extent of the region is unknown; entrances exist southeast of Elden Root,[1] in the forests of southwestern Jodewood, and in southeastern Malabal Tor.[2]

The forests of Selene's Web are known for their vigorous, unwholesome growth. In 2E 582, the Mages Guild launched an expedition into the forest to search for Selene. They were attacked by Selene's Bosmer and Khajiit followers, as well as woodland creatures, hoarvors, and spiders. The expedition was ultimately successful in dispelling the magic barrier around Selene's sanctum, slaying her, and capturing her soul for study.[2]

Some time after this, Selene was freed and constructed a fortress in Selene's Web. She attempted to conquer the whole of Valenwood during the Imperial Simulacrum with an army of spiders, and proposed that the Bosmer come to Selene's Web to surrender. Instead, Queen Ulandra of Elden Root sent the Eternal Champion into the fortress to steal the Heart of Selene, a great jewel in which she had infused her lifeforce. The fortress was filled with spiders, undead, and various other monstrosities.[1]
