Liberation of Skyrim is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

After returning from the Battle for Whiterun and claiming victory in the name of the Stormcloaks, Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak is pleased that he now controls Whiterun, the center of the province of Skyrim, a position he aims to keep.


After completing the "Battle for Whiterun," the Dragonborn is told to report to Ufric Stormcloak with the news. Elated at the achievement of his newest victory, he presents the Dragonborn with a random enchanted weapon that once belonged to an Imperial Captain and the moniker, "Ice Veins." With the full support of the rebellion, the Dragonborn is now free to openly engage the Imperials and create mayhem as they see fit. However, they are commanded to meet Galmar Stone-Fist at the Stormcloaks' hidden camp in Falkreath for the first of many orders.

The quest is actually an overarching quest encompassing a number of subquests in order to take over Imperial-controlled towns, forts and ultimately entire Holds in the name of the Stormcloaks, thus solidifying Ulfric's rule and the freedom of Skyrim.
