In 3E 41, Pelagius was the first of the Third Era Emperors to be assassinated, most likely by nobles seeking a more competent Emperor.[source?] He was killed by the Dark Brotherhood while praying at the Temple of the One in the Imperial City. Because he had no children, this officially ended the direct Tiber Septim bloodline, and he was succeeded by his first cousin, Kintyra Septim.
