The Eras

An overview of the various eras:

Prehistoric Eras

  1. The Dawn Era – The birth of time itself. Different from the Merethic Era.
  2. Mythic Era or Merethic Era – Includes creation of Time and Nirn, the Aedra, Daedra, and the races of Tamriel.

Modern Eras

  1. The First Era – Includes both the First and Second Empires. (The First Empire, either the Ysgramor Dynasty of Skyrim or the Alessian Empire; the Second, the Reman Dynasty)
  2. The Second Era – Also known as the "Common Era," includes the rule of the Akaviri Potentates, as well as the 400-year time period known as the Interregnum. The Elder Scrolls Online and Redguard take place in this era.
  3. The Third Era is the Empire of Tamriel, ruled by the Septim Dynasty, and lasts 433 years. Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind, and Oblivion all take place during this era.
  4. The Fourth Era is the era that occurs after the end of the Septim Dynasty, and includes the events in Skyrim.

Dawn Era

  • The brothers Anu and Padomay enter into the Void, and time begins.
  • They give birth to their own Souls, Anui-El and Sithis, whose interplay creates the Aurbis.
  • Lorkhan and Auriel are the first spirits born into the Aurbis, Lorkhan wanders and Auriel creates time.
  • The Original Spirits or et'Ada emerge within the Aurbis are either aligned with Anu (Anuic spirits) or Padomay (Padomaic spirits).
  • Lorkhan, a Padomaic spirit, travels the Aurbis and conceives the concept that Mundus should be created.
  • Lorkhan then tricks/convinces other et'Ada to join him. Those that do become the Aedra and those that don't become the Daedra.
  • The Aedra create 12 worlds of creation. Some creation myths believe each world is a God. These 12 worlds are molded together to create Nirn.
  • Many of the Aedra die during the creation with some becoming mortals to ensure the continuation of life on Mundus whilst some become the Ehlnofey or "Earthbones," the Laws of Nature.
  • Many of the Aedra flee back to Aetherius, which is a part of Aurbis, and become the Magne-ge, tearing holes in Oblivion.
  • Auri-El establishes the first kingdoms of the Old Ehlnofey on Atmora and the supposed land Aldmeris. These lands are where the Aldmer originate.
  • A large number of Aedra are disappointed and angry with the creation of Mundus and seek revenge. These include the ancestors of Elves - the Old Ehlnofey, whose leader was Auri-El and whose heroes included Trinimac, Phynaster and Syrabane.
  • Auri-El sought out Lorkhan in battle and warred with him. Lorkhan's followers included the ancestors of Man—the Wandering Ehlnofey and whose heroes included Kyne, Tsun, Stuhn, Jhunal.
  • Atmora is conquered by the armies of man.
  • The great war ends when Trinimac tears Lorkhan's heart out and Auri-El fires it into the sea with his bow.
  • The war causes the mega-continent on Nirn to become flooded and fracture into smaller continents and islands.
  • The lands inhabited by the Wandering Ehlnofey, which include Akavir, Atmora, and Yokuda, become isolated. These lands are where the Tsaesci, Atmorans and Yokudans originate.
  • Some Wandering Ehlnofey remain on Tamriel, they become the Nedes.
  • The Old Ehlnofey remain on the supposed land Aldmeris and become the Aldmer.

Merethic Era

Merethic timeline provided by the Imperial Library

Circa ME 2500

Early Merethic Era

  • Aboriginal beastpeoples (ancestors of the Khajiit, Argonian, and other beastfolk) live in preliterate communities throughout Tamriel.

Middle Merethic Era

  • The Aldmer leave the supposed doomed and now-lost continent of Aldmeris (also known as 'Old Ehlnofey') and settle in Tamriel. First colonies are distributed widely along the entire coast of Tamriel. Later, inland settlements were founded primarily in fertile lowlands in southwest and central Tamriel.
  • The sophisticated, literate, and technologically advanced Aldmeri culture drove the primitive beastfolk into the jungles, marshes, mountains, and wastelands.
  • The Adamantine Tower is rediscovered and captured by the Direnni, a prominent and powerful Aldmeri clan. Crystal Tower is built on Summerset Isle and, later, White-Gold Tower in Cyrodiil.
  • One of these Aldmeri Explorers, Torval the Pilot, explores and charts Tamriel sea-lanes and the River Niben, located in southern Tamriel. He sails deep into central Cyrodiil, and acquires the Eight Islands (the site of White Gold Tower) from the beastfolk natives for the secret of literacy.
  • Aldmeri explorers map the coasts of Vvardenfell, building the First Era High Elven wizard towers at Ald Redaynia, Bal Fell, Tel Aruhn, and Tel Mora in Morrowind.
  • The Ayleids flourish in the jungles surrounding White Gold Tower (present day Cyrodiil). Ayleids, also known as the Heartland High Elves, preserved the Dawn Era magicks and language of the Ehlnofey.
  • Ostensibly a tribute-land to the High King of Alinor, Cyrodiil was often so isolated from the Summerset Isles as to be its own sovereign nation.

Late Middle Merethic Era

  • The Dwemer, a free-thinking, reclusive Elven clan devoted to the secrets of science, engineering, and alchemy, established underground cities and communities in the mountain range (later the Velothi Mountains) separating modern Skyrim and Resdayn/Morrowind.
  • The Late Middle Merethic Era is also the period of the High Velothi Culture.
  • The Chimer (ancestors of the modern Dunmer, or Dark Elves), dynamic, ambitious, long-lived Elven clans devoted to fundamentalist ancestor worship, followed the Prophet Veloth out of ancestral Elven homelands to settle in the lands now known as Morrowind.
  • Despising the secular culture and profane practices of the Dwemer, the Chimer also coveted the lands and resources of the Dwemer, and for centuries provoked them with minor raids and territorial disputes.
  • Trinimac (strongest of the Altmeri ancestor spirits) and his people (who became the Orsimer or the Pariah Folk) try to halt Velothi dissident movement. However, Daedric Prince Boethiah, as one of the masterminds of the movement, eats Trinimac. Trinimac's body and spirit are corrupted, and he emerges as Daedric Prince Malacath. The rest of his people are changed as well. They are now known as Orcs.

Late Merethic Era

  • Velothi high culture disappears on Vvardenfell Island. The earliest Dwemer Freehold colonies date from this period.
  • Degenerate Velothi devolves into tribal cultures, which, in time, evolves into the modern Great Houses of Morrowind, or persists as the barbarian Ashlander tribes. The only surviving traces of this tribal culture are scattered Velothi towers and Ashlander nomads on Vvardenfell Island. The original First Era High Elven wizard towers along the coasts of Tamriel are also abandoned about this time.
  • The proto-Nords in the final migration from Atmora (also known as 'Altmora' or 'the Elder Wood' in Aldmeris) settle in northern Tamriel. Nordic hero Ysgramor, leader of a great colonizing fleet to Tamriel, develops a runic transcription of Nordic speech based on Elvish principles, and is the first human historian.
  • Ysgramor's fleet lands at Hsaarik Head at the extreme northern tip of Skyrim's Broken Cape.
  • The Nords build there the legendary city of Saarthal.
  • The Elves drive the Men away during the Night of Tears, but Ysgramor soon returns with his Five Hundred Companions.

Late Merethic Era - Circa 1E 660

  • An immortal hero, warrior, sorcerer, and king variously known as Pelinal Whitestrake, Harrald Hairy Breeks, Ysmir, Wulfharth, Hans the Fox, etc., wanders Tamriel, gathering armies, conquering lands, ruling, then abandoning his kingdoms to wander again.

The Daedra appeared in greater numbers than ever before and the constellation of the Serpent, signifying chaos, appeared so large that it dominated the night sky.[OOG 5]
  • The barrier between Nirn and Oblivion is destroyed, allowing Molag Bal to begin the Planemeld and begin deploying Dark Anchors into Tamriel to merge Nirn and Coldharbour together into one single, nightmarish hellscape.[source?]
  • The Five Companions flee and split up. Varen wakes up outside the Abbey of the Moth Priests with no memory of his identity, and begins studying the Elder Scrolls. Lyris is captured by Molag Bal, and she is sent to Coldharbour as a slave. Sai Sahan fled and managed to hide the Amulet of Kings in Sancre Tor, but later on he too suffered the same fate as Lyris. Mannimarco begun sacrificing souls to Molag Bal, including the Vestige's. Abnur Tharn fled and continued to rule as Overlord of Nibenay.[source?]
  • Clivia Tharn assumes the role of Empress Regent in the absence of her husband Varen.[133]

The Lord of Reich Gradkeep (now Anticlere) was deathly ill through 266 and finally died at the end of the year. There were, in short, no leaders to unite the province against the Usurper."[174]

Examples of timeline conflicts

Due to the nature of history itself, sometimes dates and events come into conflict. This occurs in real life frequently, but this also occurs in The Elder Scrolls lore occasionally, too. The following are some examples where this was the case:

  1. The rule of King Harald is recorded as starting in 1E 143 and lasting for 78 years until his death in 1E 221,[11] however the Pocket Guide to the Empire, First Edition: Skyrim mentions Skyrim was under his rule in 1E 113, which was also the year of his birth: "In the 113th year of the First Era, the entirety of modern Skyrim was under the reign of King Harald." This makes it unclear if Harald was crowned High King at birth in 1E 113 or if the Pocket Guide is simply incorrect.
  2. A Dance in Fire states: "It seemed as if the palace had always housed the Atrius Building Commission, the company of clerks and estate agents who authored and notarized nearly every construction of any note in the Empire. It had stood for two hundred and fifty years, since the reign of the Emperor Magnus." [167] This would mean he was Emperor in 3E 147, which conflicts with several other reports which state that it was Pelagius Septim III at this time.
  3. Disputes surrounding the death of Kintyra II; some put it at 3E 114[153][152], while another puts it at 3E 123.[163]
  4. Disputes surrounding the date that Uriel Septim III was sworn in as Emperor.
  5. Disputes surrounding the date of the Camoran Usurper.
  6. Slight dispute about the date that the Mages Guild was created (Fighters Guild disputes the date of the "Guild Act" by one year).
  7. Some events are also results of Dragon Breaks. See that page for more details about this.
  8. The Wolf Queen, Book III states that Pelagius Septim II died at the very end of 3E 98, rather than 3E 99 as Brief History of the Empire, Book I states, and that his successor was appointed the following year.[155][142]
  9. Two books claim that Pelagius Septim II was born on 314 and 319 in the Third Empire.[citation needed]
  10. Annals of the Dragonguard has Reman Cyrodiil II's rule starting at around 1E 2806.[74] However, his tomb in Sancre Tor puts it 1E 2812.[78]
  11. Reman II: The Limits of Ambition claims that Reman Cyrodiil II dies in 1E 2843,[85] while his tomb in Sancre Tor says his death occurred in 1E 2851.[78]
  12. The death of Kintyra Septim (former Queen of Silvenar, Valenwood) is listed by some sources as 3E 48,[152] while some other sources list it as 3E 53.[11]
  13. The ending of the Stormcloak and Imperial Legion civil war in Skyrim before the Dragonborn and Greybeards' truce meeting in the main quest Season Unending conflicts with the timeline stating that the civil war ends before Alduin is defeated. Possibly meaning that the civil war is meant to end after Alduin is defeated in the main quest Sovngarde. Expanding on this - why would the truce meeting in the main quest Season Unending occur in Skyrim if it had nothing to do with the main quest in the first place. The only plausible explanation is that the civil war ended shortly after the truce meeting and the events of Alduin's defeat being right after.
  14. The Third Era Timeline states Katariah died in 3E 200, but Brief History of the Empire, Book II indicates that her death was in 3E 199. However, the latter does not explicitly state the year of her death.
  15. It is generally believed that Savirien Chorak died in 2E 430,[103][24] however, one source claims that he died in 2E 431.[61]
  16. The Pocket Guides state that the Nords were pushed out of Morrowind in 1E 416,[24] however The Daggerfall Chronicles sets the year of expulsion at 1E 401.[11]
  17. High King Emeric claims that Durcorach the Black Drake led a horde of Reachmen to attack High Rock in 2E 541,[118] but the Guide to the Daggerfall Covenant claims it was in 2E 542.[119]
  18. Two different dates about Cyrus the Restless' year of birth. One claims it was in 2E 831[OOG 7] while the other claims it was in 2E 834.[OOG 1]
  19. The exact year during which Tiber Septim conquered all of Tamriel is disputed. One source claims it is in 2E 895,[OOG 1] while another[11] claims it was in 2E 896.
  20. The exact year Pelagius Septim died and Kintyra Septim was crowned is disputed. Some sources claim it was in 3E 40,[11] while others claim it was in 3E 41.[142][152] However, his reign could have easily ended in 3E 41 and still have been "less than three years" long if, in 3E 38, it began after the respective time of his death three years later in 3E 41; if this were the case, he would still have died in 3E 41 without his reign being three years long as is referenced in Brief History of the Empire, Book I.


  1. Plaque outside the Palace of the Kings: "Olaf One Eye; Reigned 1E 420 - 452; Subdued the foul dragon Numinex, reunited Skyrim after the War of Succession, and conquered the barbarous Reach."
  2. A tomb in Sancre Tor says: "Here lies Reman of Cyrodiil. He defeated the Akaviri Horde and brought peace to Tamriel. 2762."
  3. A tomb in Sancre Tor says: "Here lies Reman II of Cyrodiil, crowned Emperor of Tamriel in the year 2812. He fell in battle against the Dark Elves, in the fifty-seventh year of his age, after a reign of thirty-nine years and eight months wanting a day.
  4. A tomb in Sancre Tor says: "Here lies Reman III, last Emperor of the Cyrodiils, the scourge of the Dark Elves, who was cruelly slain by treachery, in the year 2920. He reigned forty-three years."
  5. Overheard conversation in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion: "He's getting older, but he can still teach a bit about Alteration. He's been teaching it since before the Levitation Act of 421."
  6. Although the Pocket Guide to the Empire, Third Edition: Foreword claims that the pamphlet was written "one hundred and twenty one years" after the publication of the Second Edition in 3E 331, it is highly probable that the intended wording was "one hundred and one," as otherwise this would place the publication of the Third Edition in the year 3E 452, which does not exist.


  • Dates such as 3E 0 are rather unusual, because a new century or millennium technically begins in the year 1 rather than 0.
