Titus Mede I was an Emperor of the Third Empire. He was the Emperor during the events of The Infernal City and Lord of Souls.


Titus Mede came to power after the Oblivion Crisis and Martin Septim's sacrifice, which ended the Septim Dynasty. After some time, Mede took the Imperial City by force with less than 1,000 men, usurping the current emperor at that time, Thules the Gibbering, and becoming Emperor of Tamriel. Firstly he was seen as a conqueror, unworthy to be the Emperor. Most members of the Elder Council were in favor of Thules but Titus's close associate Hierem convinced them to see Titus more as liberator than conqueror.


Due to Titus Mede not being of the Septim dynasty and the dire state the Empire was in, many of the Imperial provinces left the Empire, leaving it with only Cyrodiil, High Rock and Skyrim.[1]


Titus Mede had one known son, Attrebus Mede, and is the ancestor (unknown distance) of Titus Mede II, who later became Emperor during the time period in which The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim takes place. He also had a brother who created a Longhouse in the settlement of Ione.[1]
