Lillandril is one of the eight major cities in the province of the Summerset Isles, situated on the northwestern coast of the Isle of Summerset. Lillandril is the home of the Sapiarchs, a group of Altmeri Scholars that are talent in various topics, including Ceremoniarchy and the Altmeri Regal Praxis. The leaders of the province go here to before becoming Kings or Queens.
Lillandril is a port town found in the northwestern peninsula that overlooks the Eltheric Ocean, essentially the great unknown of the west. The city-state of Lillandril is built atop of cliffs overlooking the Ocean. The area itself is not well suited for the settlement as big as Lillandril, so the city is not as large as other city-states in the province (i.e. Skywatch and Alinor). It is walled-off, with a single road connecting it to the rest of the Summerset Isle. The nearby fortress of Sea Keep serves as a regional bulwark for Lillandril, being almost larger than the city it protects. The main gate of Lillandril is located on the eastern end of the city; there is a path that derives from the road leading to the gate, which leads into the Lillandril Docks. After the gate is the lower town square, which connects to the docks and the rest of the city, here is the Shrewd Brew, the local inn. The main road rotates to the top and goes south towards the end of the hill. The northern town square holds the local guilds, such as the Mages Guild chapter, which is very prevalent in Lillandril. Continuing onto the road will lead to the entrance of the Sapiarchs' Labyrinth, which is disconnected from the city, being found an island off the coast. The only way to the College is through a portal, which is at the end of the street. Near the portal is the local seat of power, as well as an overlook of the southern town square.

Sometime in 1E 470, a group of Elves discovered a flask on the coast near Lillandril. They learned that the flask can absorb magicka and so they used it, realizing the value it possessed. They took jobs from the Barons of the province, using it to keep the power of the Wood Elves in Valenwood in check. Fearing that Bosmer assassins would attack them, the group of Elves fled to Daggerfall where they tried to sell it to the Direnni Clan of the Isle of Balfiera. The flask was named the Flask of Lillandril, becoming infamous across the Abecean Sea. On their way to Daggerfall, the ship crashed near the island of Stros M'Kai, where it would be lost for several years. The Flask was very powerful, as well as, dangerous. It would garner the attention of Clavicus Vile, the Daedric Prince of Wishes. The Flask would come into the possession of Cyrus the Restless, a legendary warrior that defeated the Third Empire's presence on Stros M'Kai in 2E 864. Which paved the way for Hammerfell's integration in the Empire. The Flask had fallen into obscurity after that.
During the Imperial Simulacrum from 3E 389 to 3E 399, Emperor Uriel Septim VII was imprisoned along with Talin Warhaft in the Deadlands by Jagar Tharn. Tharn planned for months to capture the throne, and he was able to achieve so in ten years. Tharn had a powerful weapon called the Staff of Chaos, and he split it into nine pieces and scattered them across Tamriel, the staff was the only thing keeping Uriel Septim and Warhaft in Oblivion. A warrior escaped his clutches and traveled all corners of Tamriel to retrieve the missing pieces. The hero was known as the Eternal Champion, and he assembled the staff and defeated Jagar Tharn at the Imperial Palace. The Eternal Champion had at one point visited the city of Lillandril in their quest to recover the pieces. The city of Lillandril was under the rule of King Corridalf.
The Eternal Champion reached the city of Lillandril on their quest to find the fifth piece of the Staff. Through the visions of Ria Silmane and rumors from the people, the Champion had traveled to the northern coast, to the city of Lillandril in the province of the Summerset Isles. There the traveler ventured to the local Mages Guild where they met Corim Ashlen, the loremaster of the Guild. Ashlen gives the Eternal Champion a proposition where if they retrieved a diamond from the priests of the Temple of the Mad God, then he would reveal the location of the piece. After defeating the priests at their stronghold, Ashlen showed the way to the Crystal Tower, a mystical tower located in the eastern end of the Island. It was there that the Eternal Champion had obtained the fifth piece of the staff. The Champion had moved on to find the sixth piece of the staff somewhere in Tamriel.
