===After the Septims===
Following the Oblivion Crisis, the Imperial Legion steadily grew weaker. During the [[Lore:Umbriel Crisis|Umbriel Crisis]], an undead army advanced on the Imperial City in an effort to take control of the White-Gold Tower, causing mass panic among its citizens. The Imperial Legion attempted to hold the line along the [[Lore:Red Ring Road|Red Ring Road]], but were ultimately driven back to the walls of the city. The Synod and the College of Whispers worked together with the Legion to bring down the floating city, but also failed. In the end, the Umbriel was bansihed by a group of heroes, but by that time the Legion already suffered heavy losses.{{ref|name=TIC|{{Cite Book|The Infernal City}}}}{{ref|name=LOF|{{Cite Book|Lord of Souls}}}}

The [[Lore:Thalmor|Thalmor]] rose to power again in the Summerset Isle, and the Legion could not stop them from reforming the Aldmeri Dominion. The Thalmor eventually delivered an ultimatum to [[Lore:Titus Mede II|Emperor Titus Mede II]] demanding a series of enormous concessions. When the Emperor refused, the [[Lore:Great War|Great War]] began.{{ref|name=TGW|{{Cite Book|The Great War (book)}}}} The Aldmeri Dominion initially invaded deep into the heart of Cyrodiil, capturing [[Lore:Leyawiin|Leyawiin]] and [[Lore:Cheydinhal|Cheydinhal]] rapidly before the Legion could mobilize an effective defense. More Dominion armies invaded into Hammerfell, bypassing western Cyrodiil entirely. When they realized the weakness of the Legion, however, the Aldmeri Dominion grew bolder and mobilized an offensive against Cyrodiil as a whole, intending to bring the entire Empire under their control. Quickly, [[Lore:Bruma|Bruma]] and the Imperial City were the only cities that remained under Legion control in Cyrodiil. Meanwhile, the legions in Hammerfell were pressed hard and forced to retreat, leaving the entire southern half of Hammerfell to fall to the Dominion. The Imperial City itself came under siege. Though relieved by several legions of hardened Nord legionnaires, the Emperor ultimately gave the order to break the siege and abandon the city. An entire Legion sacrificed itself to defend the Emperor's rear.{{ref|name=TGW}}
