|Chronological and political information|
Pelagius Septim was the second ruler of the Septim Empire. He ruled Tamriel for three years; however, he wasn't the strong ruler his grandfather was, and he soon became confused in all the different provincial matters.
In 3E 41, Pelagius was the first of the Third Era Emperors to be assassinated, most likely by nobles seeking a more competent Emperor. He was killed by the Dark Brotherhood while praying at the Temple of the One, in the Imperial City. This officially ended the direct Tiber Septim bloodline. He was succeeded by Kintyra Septim.
