"I've heard of rumors of the resting place of the Helm of Winterhold, the very same helm that Jarl Hanse wore in the First Era. Hanse was in line to be High King of Skyrim, you know. Having that might get the ear of the other Holds and give me some authority."
―Jarl Korir[src]

Helm of Winterhold is a unique steel horned helmet and quest item found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It can be dated back to around 1E 369, when it was worn by Jarl Hanse of Winterhold.

It can be upgraded with a steel ingot at a workbench and also benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.


  • The Helm appears to be shown on the banner of Winterhold, highlighting its importance to Korir.
