Prince Naemon

Prince Naemon is the younger brother of Queen Ayrenn, who was named heir to the throne of Alinor after Ayrenn's sudden disappearance. However, when his sister returned from years of disappearance, she was crowned instead. He currently lives as a high-ranking noble with his wife, High Kinlady Estre.

Initially, before starting the quest Ensuring Security, he is found in the manor in Vulkhel Guard, talking to his wife. If you disturb him there, he says, "Bit busy here, if you don't mind?"

Quest-Related Events[edit]


A Hostile Situation[edit]

High Kinlady Estre and Prince Naemon in Vulkhel Guard

He can be found outside the manor, along with his wife. Before you have defeated the Veiled Heritance traitor, he will say, "I'm sorry, I was just speaking with the High Kinlady. And now you've interrupted us. Excuse us, please?"

After you saved the queen, he will be more friendly:

"I suppose congratulations are in order."
Who are you?
"I'm Prince Naemon. Ayrenn's brother, husband to Kinlady Estre."
What do you think of the Queen's goals here?
"I'm relieved she's finally come to her senses! A woman of royal blood, doing who-knows-what in the wilds? Ridiculous."

To Tanzelwil[edit]

Arriving at the ruins of Tanzelwil, you will have the opportunity to speak to him.

"Hmm. You look familiar. Have we met before?"
The Queen asked me to meet her here.
"Ah! Vulkhel Guard, of course. Welcome to Tanzelwil. Perhaps you'll get through to Her Majesty where we could not."

This completes the quest for some gold. He can immediately give you the next quest.

In the Name of the Queen[edit]

He will greet you with, "Oh, it's you. How droll to you see you again, all the way out here." Talk to him.

"We came here to honor our ancestors, and now they seem bloody well determined to kill us!"

If you did not exit the conversation after the previous quest, he'll say instead:

"Queen's favorite, I'm glad you're here. We came to Tanzelwil to honor the spirits of our ancestors, and now they seem bloody well determined to kill us all!"
Why would your ancestors try to kill you?
"An excellent question, for which I have no answer.
My dear sister, your Queen, brought us here to perform a ceremonial ritual. It's a bit of political theater, really. Gain the blessings of the dead and all that rubbish."
Is the Queen in any danger?
"If danger doesn't find her, she'll seek it out and invite it home to dinner.
She's in the ruins just ahead, conspiring with the Battlereeve. They're determined to complete the ceremony. Do be a loyal subject and see that she survives. Won't you?"
I'll see what I can do.

After agreeing to seek out the Queen, you can ask Naemon some more questions about court life and the ceremonial rituals for a new ruler.

"I swear, it's like being home for New Life Festival. The family's been drinking since noon, and everyone wants you dead."
Who are these people?
"Oh, you know how it is. In the waters off the island, there are great sea beasts. Smaller creatures cling to their sides, eating the scraps they leave behind.
It's just the same with nobility on land."
Why does the Queen have to do these rituals?
"Tradition! Whenever a new monarch takes the throne, there are endless rituals and ceremonies.
I myself was more than halfway through the eighty-eight days of liturgical chanting required to take the throne. Then my dear sister returned."
You were going to take the throne before the Queen returned?
"Oh yes. When our father King Hidellith, may he reign in glory, passed away she was slated to begin the ceremonies. But then she left. Just … poof. Gone, before she even entered the Sapiarch's Labyrinth."
Is that another ceremonial duty?
"Just so. And so it fell to me to spend the requisite three thousand five hundred and fifty-five days studying Altmeri custom and ceremoniarchy.
Ahem. But I digress."


The Honor of the Queen[edit]

If you try to talk to speak in the throne room in Elden Root before receiving the quest, he'll dismiss you: "I am busy with matters of state. Go trouble someone else." After you are sent to talk to him, he will be forced to speak with you:

"Yes? Quickly, now. Don't leave your mouth to hang agape."
King Camoran Aeradan says there are some problems with the Khajiit embassy.
"That again? My sister … Queen Ayrenn foolishly committed to build the Khajiit an embassy, months ago. Everything was to be handled through Ambassador Tarinwe at the Altmer Embassy."
Why has it been delayed?
"No. You don't get to question me. Not after you slew High Kinlady Estre. Do you think I'm one to have a chat with the person who killed my wife? That we'll break out the sylph-mead and share a good laugh?"
She gave me little choice.
[Persuade] I think Queen Ayrenn trusts you to put the Dominion's interests before your own.
"Hmph. I suppose that's my burden. Very well. I won't give you the satisfaction of doubting my loyalty. You were asking after the Khajiit?"
Yes. What could have delayed their embassy's construction?
"Ask a stonemason. I have to prepare for the ratification ceremony before Queen Ayrenn's arrival. I can't be troubled with such minor issues. If you care to pursue the matter, speak with Ambassador Tarinwe at the Altmer Embassy."
What's a ratification ceremony?
"An archaic Wood Elf ritual. If she dances to their tune, Queen Ayrenn will be recognized by the heavens as a worthy candidate for emperor of Tamriel. Rubbish, if you ask me."
Why did Queen Ayrenn offer to build the Khajiit an embassy?
"To promote harmony, she'd tell you. The same reason she picked this bizarre tree city as the Dominion's capital. She wants every member of the Dominion to feel as though they're equal."
You disagree with Queen Ayrenn's plans?
"Oh, we do need to be unified against our enemies. And having a High Elf in charge is paramount to our success. But do we really need all this coddling? The ratification ceremony, the business with the embassy … more problems due to "harmony.""

God of Schemes[edit]

If you have completed the Greenshade questline, Prince Naemon will be in Heart's Grief, trapped behind a frozen barrier.

"Please! Please! I can't breathe! I can't … breathe! Let me out!"
After all you did, why should I care?
"I am the rightful king! I am the rightful ruler of the Isles! Let me out of here! Let me out of here that I might take my place …."

If you choose to release him, he will say "Not like this! No! No!" upon being frozen into a statue of solid ice.
