Not to be confused with Wilhelm the Worm or Willem.

Wilhelm is a Nord innkeeper and owner of the Vilemyr Inn, in Ivarstead.


Lifting the ShroudEdit

Wilhelm wants someone to investigate Shroud Hearth Barrow because he believes it to be haunted. An adventurer by the name of Wyndelius Gatharian has gone missing in the barrow, and spirits have been spotted outside. Bringing Wilhelm Wyndelius's Journal will reward the Dragonborn with the Sapphire Dragon Claw that is required to travel further into Shroud Hearth Barrow.

The Straw that BrokeEdit

Narfi asks the Dragonborn to confront Wilhelm about his sister.

Mead KegEdit

Romlyn Dreth, from Riften, asks the Dragonborn to deliver a stolen Black-Briar Mead Keg to Wilhelm.


Lifting the Shroud must be completed in order for Wilhelm to become available for marriage.


  • A note from Wilhelm labeled An Apology can be found inside The Pawned Prawn. Inside the note, it can be inferred that Bersi Honey-Hand, owner of the shop, and Wilhelm are "old friends," and that he had requested that Wilhelm investigate Shroud Hearth Barrow, as "trinkets from the Nordic Barrows sell quite well..."
