Regent Thonica ? 3E 290[66] 3E 307[66][49] Uriel VI was too young to rule in his own right when he was crowned, so his mother, Thonica, ruled as regent. He was eventually allowed to ascend the throne and assume full Imperial powers in 3E 307. Under her reign, civil wars continued.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The joint forces of the Alessian Empire under Ami-El and the First Empire of the Nords attacked the Direnni forces in the Western Reach in 1E 358.[UOL 1]
  2. ^ The dates of Shor-El's reign are unknown, but Shor-El is mentioned after Hestra in Where were you when the Dragon Broke? as part of the Emperor Oversoul.
  3. ^ The final emperor of the Alessian Empire is unidentified. The Emperor’s office was abolished in 1E 2331 when the Alessian Empire and Alessian Order were dissolved at the conclusion of the War of Righteousness.
  4. ^ The Remanada contains an allegorical story of Reman emerging from Sancre Tor as a child, but this should not be taken as literal truth.
  5. ^ Reman I died in 1E 2762 and it is reasonable to assume that his successor was crowned almost immediately afterwards.
  6. ^ The exact year of Kastav's death and the ascension of his successor, Reman II, is not specified by Annals of the Dragonguard. Sky Haven Temple was cut off from contact with Kastav in 1E 2804 and under siege during 1E 2805 and 1E 2806, so no news of the outside world reached the members of the Dragonguard stationed there. Only after the siege was lifted did they become aware of Reman II's ascension. However, given his 39 years of rule mentioned on his epitaph and his death in 1E 2843 according to Reman II: The Limits of Ambition, Reman II likely deposed Kastav in 1E 2804. Reman II was probably only officially crowned after Kastav's death in 1E 2812.
  7. ^ Brazollus Dor was placed between Reman II and Reman III by High King Emeric in High King Emeric Answers Your Questions.
  8. ^ Most sources such as The Brothers of Darkness, Pocket Guide to the Empire, 3rd Edition, and Systres History: Volume 7 state that Savirien-Chorak was assassinated in 2E 430, but other sources such as the Pocket Guide to the Empire, 1st Edition and the Crafting Motifs series state that Savirien-Chorak was assassinated in 2E 431. Since most sources state that Savirien-Chorak was assassinated in 2E 430, this date is presumably the correct date of the assassination.
  9. ^ It's controversial which assassin organization really killed the last Akaviri Potentate. The Brothers of Darkness states that the Dark Brotherhood assassinated Savirien-Chorak, while Sacred Witness implies that the Morag Tong were responsible for the assassination.
  10. ^ It is unknown when the warlord Attrebus gained the Imperial Throne during the Interregnum. According to the Pocket Guide to the Empire, 1st Edition, Attrebus' reign is established to have occurred prior to the city of Rimmen's secession from Elsweyr in 2E 812, and the book mentions that the Akaviri were expelled from Cyrodiil by Attrebus during his reign and that they later settled in the Rim Territories in Elsweyr. The Rim-men already existed by 2E 582, and since every Emperor from 2E 533 to 2E 582 is known, this means that Attrebus could have only reigned sometime during the period from the assassination of Savirien-Chorak in 2E 430 to the ascension of Durcorach "the Black Drake" as Emperor in 2E 533.
  11. ^ a b The Chronicles of the Five Companions and The Chorrol Crier state that Varen Aquilarios disappeared in 2E 579, while Travails and Triumphs of a Monarch states that Varen Aquilarios disappeared in 2E 578. More sources use 2E 579 as the date of Varen’s disappearance, so this date can be presumed to be more accurate.
  12. ^ During the Three Banners War, as each alliance fleetingly gained control of the keeps around the Imperial City, they would crown a figurehead Emperor from among their warriors. These Emperors' reigns were extremely short-lived and their names have been lost to history.[44]
  13. ^ At some point prior to 2E 812, the remnants of the defeated Kamal army that invaded Tamriel in 2E 572 seized the Imperial Throne from the successors of the warlord Attrebus. This suggests that at least one Kamal ruled as Emperor for a time.
  14. ^ Cuhlecain proclaimed himself emperor upon capturing the Imperial City, but he was assassinated before he could be formally crowned. His successor Tiber Septim, who became the first emperor of the Third Empire of Tamriel after completing the conquest of the continent 42 years later, honored Cuhlecain as "Emperor Zero".
  15. ^ Who was responsible for the assassination of Cuhlecain is controversial. The Pocket Guide to the Empire, 1st Edition states that Cuhlecain was assassinated by a nightblade from the Western Reach, while the The Arcturian Heresy states that Tiber Septim assassinated Cuhlecain and covered it up by claiming that the Western Reach was actually behind the assassination.[13][46]
  16. ^ There is some disagreement regarding Pelagius' relationship with Tiber Septim. A version of Brief History of the Empire and the Biography of Barenziah refer to Pelagius as Tiber's son, but a revised version of Brief History of the Empire and The Arcturian Heresy refer to Pelagius as Tiber's grandson. Some passages in The Real Barenziah suggest that Tiber's wife, referred to as the Empress, had multiple "children." The likeliest explanations include that Tiber and the Empress had female children otherwise unrecorded in history. Other possibilities include that the Empress had children that were not Tiber's children, that the two of them had secret offspring, or simply a mistake on the part of the author. Regardless, the throne ended up with Kintyra.
  17. ^ a b Brief History of the Empire states that Pelagius reigned for "less than three years," which means that Pelagius' reign ended in either 3E 40 or 3E 41, depending on when in 3E 38 Tiber Septim died. The Daggerfall Chronicles states that Pelagius was assassinated in 3E 40, while The Third Era Timeline states that Pelagius was assassinated in 3E 41. Without further corroboration, it is unclear whether 3E 40 or 3E 41 is the correct year of Pelagius' assassination.
  18. ^ The Third Era Timeline and Biography of the Wolf Queen both state that Pelagius' reign ended in 3E 99; this is likely a rounded figure, however, as The Wolf Queen states that he died on 15th Evening Star, 3E 98 (Evening Star is the last month in the year). This is supported by The Daggerfall Chronicles listing Pelagius' year of death as 3E 98.
  19. ^ The Wolf Queen, v3, The Third Era Timeline, and Biography of the Wolf Queen state that Antiochus was crowned in 3E 99. Brief History of the Empire and The Daggerfall Chronicles state that he was crowned in 3E 98.
  20. ^ The Wolf Queen, v5 states that Antiochus fell into a coma in 3E 119 and that his funeral was in 3E 120. The Madness of Pelagius agrees, stating that Kintyra ascended the throne "just over a year" after Pelagius' birth in 3E 119. Both books are contradicted in the Biography of the Wolf Queen, which explicitly places his death in 3E 112. The year 3E 120 is presumably correct, since most references state that to be the correct year.
  21. ^ a b There is uncertainty over the date of Kintyra's death, as The Wolf Queen, v7 states that Uriel III was crowned "four years previously" to the year 3E 125, implying that he was crowned in 3E 121. Brief History of the Empire explicitly states that Uriel took the throne in 3E 121. The Biography of the Wolf Queen states that Kintyra was executed in 3E 114 and that Uriel ascended to the throne "seven years later". Thus, while all three books agree on the date of Uriel's ascension, the Biography of the Wolf Queen implies a seven year interregnum during the War of the Red Diamond when nobody wore the Imperial crown. The precise date given in Broken Diamonds implies that Kintyra was held in captivity for some time before her death.
  22. ^ Both Brief History of the Empire and The Madness of Pelagius put the length of Katariah's reign at forty-six years, and The Third Era Timeline puts her death in 3E 200. To fit in with later events, her reign must end in 3E 200. A possible explanation of the stated length of Katariah's reign by Brief History of the Empire and The Madness of Pelagius could be that Katariah's reign began in late 3E 153 but ended in early 3E 200, meaning that her reign may have in reality lasted forty-six years and some months, but not quite forty-seven years.
  23. ^ a b Brief History of the Empire makes two contradictory statements regarding Cassynder's year of death. First, it says that "in two years, [after his reign began] he was dead"; In the next volume, however, it contradicts itself by saying that Cassynder died "three years after [his accession]". It is likely that the second statement is incorrect, as The Third Era Timeline lists Cassynder's death as occurring in 3E 202, which is two years after he became emperor.
  24. ^ Brief History of the Empire states that Uriel IV's reign lasted 43 years, but this is clearly an error since both The Daggerfall Chronicles and The Third Era Timeline place Uriel's death in 3E 247 and Brief History of the Empire places the accession of Uriel's successor Cephorus II in 3E 247.
  25. ^ Although Brief History of the Empire states Cephorus II became emperor in 3E 268, this is obviously an error and was corrected in a revised version of the book. The same book states that Uriel Septim V also became emperor in 3E 268, so it is more logical to assume that 3E 247 is the correct year. The Daggerfall Chronicles and The Third Era Timeline both use 3E 247 as the date of Cephorus’ ascension.
  26. ^ Cephorus is described as "a cousin more closely related to the original Septim line", although his precise line of descent is not clear.
  27. ^ a b The Third Era Timeline states that Uriel VI died and Morihatha was crowned in 3E 320, and The Daggerfall Chronicles states that the year was 3E 317. However, Brief History of the Empire notes that Morihatha was born a month after her father left for Akavir in 3E 288, and that she was 25-years-old as Empress, which would put her coronation in 3E 313.
  28. ^ a b Brief History of the Empire states that Pelagius reigned for 49 years, but this has been acknowledged as an error - the correct span is 29 years.
  29. ^ Although it is never stated that Attrebus Mede succeeded his father Titus I as Emperor, it can be assumed that he did since he was Crown Prince as of 4E 48, there was no indication of other heirs to the throne at the time, and the Mede bloodline survived until the time of Titus II.
  30. ^ a b It is unknown how many Mede Emperors reigned between Attrebus and Titus II. Given the gap of 142 years between Attrebus' birth in 4E 26 and Titus II's ascension to the throne in 4E 168, as well as the knowledge that Titus II's father had a sister while Attrebus had no known siblings, Attrebus was most likely not Titus II's father or grandfather. It can therefore be assumed that at least two other Medes reigned as emperor between Attrebus and Titus II.
