Thane of Whiterun is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The Dragonborn can gain the title of Thane of Whiterun. This quest only becomes available if the Dragonborn sides with the Stormcloaks during the civil war.
- Assist five citizens of Whiterun.
- Purchase Breezehome.
- Return to the Jarl.
Siding with the Stormcloaks in the Civil War places Vignar Gray-Mane on the throne as Jarl of Whiterun and the Dragonborn's status as Thane is revoked. To become a Thane again, the Dragonborn must assist five citizens of Whiterun and purchase Breezehome (if this hasn't already been done). Speak to Vignar after he is promoted to Jarl about becoming a Thane. He'll award a Blade of Whiterun and grant them the title of Thane again.
