"The Silver-Blood family will be heard."
―Thongvor Silver-Blood[src]

Thongvor Silver-Blood is a Nord in Markarth and is the patriarch of the Silver-Blood Family. He is also Jarl Igmund's replacement as Jarl, if the Stormcloaks liberate the Reach.


"Damn those Forsworn! Think they can kill people in my city? I'll have Madanach's head!"
―Thongvor, after Madanach's escape[src]

Thongvor has a great disapproval of elves in general due to the Thalmors influence on Skyrim's politics and an even greater hatred for the Forsworn, who ravage his family's demesne.


Role in the FamilyEdit

Thongvor is the older brother of Thonar Silver-Blood, who takes care of the family's business interests, allowing Thongvor to concentrate on the politics of The Reach and Skyrim.


He expresses unhappiness with Jarl Igmund for not listening to him despite the Silver-Bloods being the richest and most influential family in Markarth. He is particularly upset about the Jarl's decision to support the White-Gold Concordat, which outlawed the worship of Talos. He is a supporter of Ulfric Stormcloak.


The Taste of DeathEdit

Thongvor argues with Brother Verulus over the recent closing of the Hall of the Dead in Markarth. Thongvor isn't happy about being denied access to his ancestors' graves, located left of the Understone Keep.

Liberation of SkyrimEdit

If the Stormcloaks gain control of Markarth, during the quest The Battle For Fort Sungard, Thongvor becomes the new Jarl of Markarth. Yngvar the Singer will be his housecarl and Reburrus Quintilius will be his steward.

  • "The Jarl can refuse me all he likes. He can't ignore us forever."
