|High King Torygg|
Ascension and reignEdit
Before his ascension to the throne, Torygg's father, Istlod, was High King for nearly 25 years. Upon Istlod's death, the Moot elected Torygg High King of Skyrim; however, this was more of a ceremonial confirmation rather than an actual vote. High King Torygg would reign over Skyrim until his death at the hands of Ulfric Stormcloak in 4E 201. 
In 4E 201, Torygg was killed by Ulfric Stormcloak, Jarl of Windhelm, in a challenge over the leadership of Skyrim. According to Ulfric, he used the power of the Thu'um to shout Torygg to the ground and then finished him with his sword in front of the entire court. 
Ulfric and his supporters maintain it was a formal one-on-one duel in the "Old Nord Way", whereas many others in Skyrim, such as General Tullius, believe it was murder and that Ulfric shouted him to pieces.
Through dialogue with his former court members and Elisif, the player discovers he respected Ulfric Stormcloak. Sybille Stentor even stated that he might have stood up against the Empire if Ulfric had asked him to . After his death, he is still respected by both Imperial loyalists and Stormcloaks.
- "When Ulfric Stormcloak, with savage Shout, sent me here, my sole regret was fair Elisif, left forlorn and weeping."
- "I faced him fearlessly - my fate inescapable, yet my honor is unstained - can Ulfric say the same?"
- The unique apparel worn by Torygg is called Embroidered Garments. They are unobtainable via normal means. However, his Steel Sword is pickpocketable when he is met in Sovngarde.
