"If Falinesti was a tree, then Silvenar was a flower. A magnificent pile of faded shades of green, red, blue, and white, shining with crystalline residue."
Waughin Jarth[src]

Silvenar is a city located along the Xylo River in the Malabal Tor region of Valenwood. The city of Silvenar is the spiritual home of the Bosmer.

By gameEdit


The city has one bridge entrance to the east where it's guarded by a Lurcher guardian. The entire city is built on and around a large Graht-oak tree. The main street is a big round-a-bout with merchants, guilds, and residents around it. There are smaller trees surrounding the large tree that connect to the upper levels of the tree.


Early YearsEdit

When the White-Gold Tower was established cities including Ceyatatar, Woodhearth, and Silvenar flourished with an increase of trade from what is now known as the center of Cyrodiil.[1]

First EraEdit

In the late first era, the city of Silvenar was a simple settlement. It wasn't until the Second Empire stepped in and occupied Valenwood. Silvenar, along with Falinesti, Elden Root, Haven, Cormount, and Woodhearth were given independence and became a major power in the region.[2]

Second EraEdit

Main article: Silvenar (Online)

A Bosmer named Indaenir became the new Silvenar after the prior Silvenar Edhelorn died on the Isle of Khenarthi's Roost, Elsweyr. After officially being named Silvenar at Hectahame, the Malabal Tor region has been attacked by a man known as The Hound. The new Silvenar had to married the newly appointed Green Lady at the city of Silvenar. However, the Hound arrived first and took control of the city. The Vestige and the Aldmeri Dominion entered the city and rescued the three Spinners trapped by the Houndsmen. The Vestige then entered the main hall and defeated the Hound. With the Hound defeated, the Silvenar and the Green Lady married and brought Valenwood together. The current Mane at the time, Akkhuz-ri had visited the city to witness the wedding of his friend. He however succumbed to dark magic and fled to Reaper's March killing innocents along the way.[3]

Prior to the Hounds conquest, the city was under the watch of Treethane Thalrinel. When the Honud arrived, Thalrinel rejected his new found power and as a result died from the retaliation. She was then replaced by Gwilgoth Branchbreaker as the Silvenar when she supported the Hound.[4]

Underneath the city of Silvenar is an expansive set of tunnels known as the Roots of Silvenar. The Ebonheart Pact dug into the caves to collect samples of the Graht-oak tree. The operation was lead by Adavos Dren.[5]

In 2E 896, the city of Silvenar was ruled by the Septim Empire. The Queen of Silvenar was Kintyra Septim before she assumed the Ruby Throne in the Imperial City.[6]

Third EraEdit

During the Imperial Simulacrum, the Eternal Champion had at one point visited the city in their quest for a piece of the Staff of Chaos.

Pelagius Septim III was madman emperor in the third era. Pelagius was known to trap princes and princesses of Silvenar in his room with him. When he released them, he'll slip an unsigned Declaration of War through the door.[7]
