Wind Keep was under the rule of Countess Ilise Manteau, and in 2E 582, she had acted very strangely putting everyone in Wind Keep on edge. One of her suitors gave her a strange mirror that put her under a trance. After being rescued by a mysterious traveler known as the Vestige, Manteau tasked them into finding the suitor that gave her the mirror. It was discovered that Sirion Guerat of the Supernal Dreamers gave her the mirror as a part of a plot to destroy the Daggerfall Covenant through Vaermina's will.[1][2]

Third EraEdit

  • Sometime in the second era, Wind Keep was considered a Duchy and had a Duchess before she passed away.[OOG 1]
