Lilmoth is a city in Black Marsh. It is the south-easternmost city both in the province and in all of Tamriel. It is one of several possible locations that the Eternal Champion may discover in The Elder Scrolls: Arena.
Prior to the Imperial colonization of the original Argonian city of Lilmoth, it was ruled by Argonian priest-kings and queens. The earliest record of an Imperial sovereign in the city dating to 3E 109 when Magnus Septim wedded the Queen of Lilmoth, Hellena.[source?]
Lilmoth had previously been sympathetic to Cyrodilic interests even before its colonization during the Third Era, as far back as the Reman Empire and its war with Morrowind, with the warlord of the city of the time, Ulaqth, leading troops into battle against the Duke of Mournhold. The only other recorded warlord of the city was a warlady called Ioa.[source?]
In the early years of the Fourth Era, Lilmoth fell victim to the floating city Umbriel. This event is known as The Slaughter of Lilmoth. This was one of the most gruesome massacres in all of Tamrielic history. This was also the place where both Annaïg Hoïnart and Mere-Glim, two friends who lived for a time on Umbriel, were born.[OOG 1]
Lilmoth has had two Hist trees. One went rogue at an unknown time, and the second was grown from a single fragment that survived the elder's killing, as said by Mere-Glim in An Elder Scrolls Novel: The Infernal City.[OOG 1]
The Imperial Quarter is an old quarter standing on the hills Lilmoth is located.[OOG 1]
The pushbottom is the ancient and gangrenous heart of Lilmoth. Imperials dwelt in this quarter in the early days when the Empire had first imposed its will and architecture on the Argonians of Black Marsh. As of the early Fourth Era, it became home to the desperate and sinister townsfolk. Patrols barely come here, and it has become a place where the poorest of the poor live—enemies of the Argonian An-Xileel party dominating the city, criminals and monsters.[OOG 1]
- Lilmoth shares the name with the race of beastfolk known as Lilmothiit, indicating a possible connection.
