City Isle, the Imperial Isle[1], the Eight Islands[2] or the Ruby Isles[OOG 1] is a large island located in the middle of Lake Rumare, within the province of Cyrodiil. City Isle gets its name from the fact that the Imperial City is located in the middle of the island, the Imperial City being the capital of the province.



The majority of the Island is covered by the Imperial City, which is the biggest city in all of Tamriel.
