The Ghost of Old Hroldan is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is started at the Old Hroldan Inn.


The innkeeper, Eydis, will tell the history of Tiber Septim and offer to rent his room to the Dragonborn for 10 GoldIcon.

Sleeping in the bed past 1:00AM, Eydis will awaken the Dragonborn with her screaming. When questioned, she claims that a ghost has been wandering around the inn, "like it owned the place." She goes on to say that she's heard stories about the inn being haunted by one of Tiber Septim's soldiers ever since the Great War.

The Ghost of Old Hroldan will sit in a chair and have a drink. When spoken to, the ghost asks "Hjalti? Is that you?" He thinks the Dragonborn is Hjalti, a fellow brother in arms. Hjalti promised the Ghost of Old Hroldan his sword before they were slain while sacking Hroldan, so that they "could become brothers." He has been waiting since his death.


After receiving the quest, the bartender of Old Hroldan Inn will direct the Dragonborn to one of seven random locations:

Completing it rewards the Dragonborn with +1 training in One-Handed and Block.


  • "Hjalti Early-Beard" is Tiber Septim's original name. The ghost of Old Hroldan may mistake the Last Dragonborn for Hjalti due to the fact that both are Dragonborn.
