Alessandra's Dagger is a One-Handed weapon that appears in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Alessandra's Dagger is owned by Alessandra of Riften. It belonged to Alessandra's father and it was given to her when she was training to become a priestess of Arkay. After completing the training, she received a new ceremonial dagger and now she wishes to return the old one to her father's corpse in the Hall of the Dead in Whiterun, as a way of making peace.


The dagger is a quest item given to the Dragonborn as part of a miscellaneous quest to deliver it to Andurs in Whiterun. The dagger is removed upon completion of the quest.


The dagger has the same base damage as a steel dagger, but loses much of its value at higher levels, especially when Dwarven or glass daggers become more readily available, although the low weight value may be beneficial for a minimal weight build.

  1. Please reload an old save to confirm if the bug is still happening.
  2. If the bug is still occurring, please post the bug report with the appropriate system template  360  ,  PS3  ,  PC  .
  3. If a fix to the bug is known, please provide it, but avoid use of first-person-anecdotes: such discussions belong on the appropriate forum board and not the article.
  •  360   Rarely, it can be pickpocketed from Alessandra before the quest has begun.
  • Alessandra says her father's remains are located in Windhelm; this is likely a developer oversight, as they are in fact located in Whiterun.
  • During the quest, although the dagger is a quest item, it can be put in a weapon rack, but not given to followers.
