Old Mournhold is a location found in The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal.


It is the ruins of the ancient city on which the whole of Mournhold was later built.[1][2] It is a large complex of underground tunnels and ancient ruins located under the city of Mournhold in Morrowind. Old Mournhold can be accessed from many trapdoors throughout the city. It is a very large labyrinthine series of sewers, tunnels, tombs and ruins. Several groups of assassins, bandits, Goblins and undead can be found within.


Old Mournhold Temple Shrine - Tribunal

The temple shrine

Old Mournhold, is said to be built over even older Dwemer ruins and Daedric shrines.[3] At one point, Main-land Ebonheart and Mournhold were a combined city-state. It was ruled by Clan R'Aathim, whose royal house held the High Kingship of Morrowind. It was then split into the two separate city-states when Queen Lian's twin sons were left as joint heirs.[4]

During the end of the First Era, Mournhold was known to be the capital of Morrowind. The Royal city of Old Mournhold was destroyed in 1E 2920 by the Daedric Prince Mehrunes Dagon. Almalexia and Sotha Sil were too late to prevent it's destruction, although, they succeeded in banishing Mehrunes Dagon back to Oblivion.[2]


There are four main areas: the Sewers, the Temple Sewers, the dwemer ruin of Bamz-Amschend and the daedric ruins of Norenen-dur.

The SewersEdit

Palace SewersEdit

From the surface, the Palace Sewers can be reached through the basement of the Royal Palace. Doors lead to the Bazaar Sewers and the West Sewers. A underwater door leads to the Residential Sewers.

Residential SewersEdit

The Residential Sewers lie beneath Godsreach. It can be accessed through trapdoors outside in Godsreach, or inside some of the buildings here.

West SewersEdit

The West Sewers are a maze-like area accessible from the Palace Sewers or the Residential Sewers.

Manor DistrictEdit

Home of Dandras Vules and The Dark Brotherhood. It is mostly made up of the ruins of Moril Manor.

Bazaar SewersEdit

The Bazaar Sewers can be reached from the Great Bazaar through a trapdoor. Doors lead to the Manor District and the Palace Sewers.


The Battlefield is likely the area where the battle between Almalexia and Mehrunes Dagon took place. It is made of large caverns and is infested with rats and undead.
