During the first era, both Kvatch and Skingrad were rivals. In 1E 472, the rivalry ended during the rule of King Justinius. The king's daughter, Belene married Prince Rislav Larich of Skingrad thus making peace among nations. Years later, the Kings of Western Colovia joined the two city-states in the resistance against the Alessian Empire. This resulted in Clan Direnni getting involved in Cyrodiil's conflict and the fall of the Alessian Empire.

A few hundred years ago, there was a well-known Colovian general by the name of Thibault that hailed from Kvatch. When he died, he was buried in a crypt in Reaper's March now known as Thibaut's Cairn.
The city was ruled by Count Carolus Aquilarios, the nephew of Varen Aquilarios. But the count however has had a power struggle between Primate Artorius and the Order of the Hour. The Dark Brotherhood of Western Cyrodiil has influenced the city as time continued. The Vestige has allied themselves with the Dark Brotherhood. At first, the Vestige assassinated Akatosh Sermonizers throughout town and eventually killed Grand Sermonizer Fithia at the local estate.
Governor Fortunata ap Dugal of Anvil had ordered the Dark Brotherhood to assassinate the leader of the Order of the Hour, Commander Marcus Scipio. The Vestige takes the contract and assassinates Scipio. They then inform Aquilarios about the murder, who apparently performed the Black Sacrament to have the Brotherhood kill Dugal. In the end, both Scipio and Dugal have been murdered by the Dark Brotherhood.
An unknown murderer known as The Sweetroll Killer has killed many citizens in Kvatch. Reman Mevavius a resident in Kvatch at the time, put fliers around town for anyone to help. The Vestige accepted and with the help of a member from the Eyes of the Queen and the Morag Tong they've uncovered the murder. The murder's fate is unknown.

Before the Oblivion Crisis, Kvatch was ruled by the Goldwine Lineage with it's last leader being Ormellius Goldwine who caused a small period of unrest within the kingdom. Saint Jiub of Morrowind went to the city to work on his autobiography.
Kvatch went under attack by the forces of Mehrunes Dagon after the assassination of Uriel Septim VII. Many of it's citizens including Saint Jiub were killed, while some fled to either the outskirts or the ruined chapel of Akatosh. The soon to be Hero of Kvatch destroyed the Oblivion Gate that formed outside the city gate and rescued Martin Septim, the last descendant of Tiber Septim and Uriel Septim VII. With what little they had left, Kvatch and the other kingdoms of Cyrodiil, defended Bruma from a similar attack on Kvatch.
