Riverhold is a city located along the Cyrodiil - Elsweyr border in the region of Anequina. The city is known to have mass marketplace where people gather from all over the countryside.[1]



Riverhold is located along the northern edge of the province of Elsweyr. It's located in what can be considered the South Weald which encompasses the northernmost reaches of both Valenwood and Elsweyr. Nearby the city of Riverhold is a small market town called Sheeraln, which is three miles eastward.[2] The walls of the city were saffron, irregular, and not very tall. Inside the outer walls are towers colored in an array of colors including azure, cream, vermilion, chocolate, gold, and jet. The city can be described as once tired and exuberant.[2]
