  • 00:00:00 The video covers the history of the Elder Scrolls universe from the perspective of the Septim Dynasty, focusing on the rise and fall of the empire of Men. The first known inhabitants of Tamriel were the beastfolk, followed by the Elves and then the Men. The first dynasty of Men, the Stormcrowns, ruled over Tamriel for many centuries until they were overthrown by the second dynasty, the Cyrodiilans. The third dynasty, the Septims, were the most successful dynasty and ruled for over 300 years until their empire was destroyed by the fourth dynasty, the Daggerfall Covenant.
  • 00:05:00 This video tells the history of the Septim Empire, a powerful medieval empire that ruled Tamriel for over two thousand years. The Septim Empire was founded by a group of ancestors who migrated from their homeland on the continent of Atmora into Skyrim, where they encountered the "Falmer" (Snow Elves). Relations between the Nords and the Falmer were initially peaceful, but eventually escalated into a war that resulted in the massacre of the city of Saarthal. However, a warrior named Ysgramor was able to escape and return to Atmora, recruiting a mighty army known as the "five hundred companions" and avenging the massacre at Saarthal. This led to the founding of the Septim Empire, which ruled Tamriel with an iron fist for the next two thousand years. In High Rock, the Direnni High Elves were near death due to centuries of warfare with the Nords and Alessians, allowing their human descendants, the Bretons, to become the hegemons of that region. Meanwhile, in Skyrim, the Nordic culture flourished. However, the Alessian empire was never able to unify humanity, and eventually fell due to internal religious struggles. Cyrodiil fractured into numerous petty kingdoms for the next four hundred
  • 00:10:00 The video covers the history of the Septim Empire, which was founded by Tiber Septim in the 2nd century of the First Era. The empire grew to include Skyrim, High Rock, Hammerfell, and Elsweyr, and the Septim dynasty was eventually overthrown by a coup. Tiber Septim was born on Atmora or Alcaire, and his birth name was Talos, meaning "stormcrown" in Old Elhnofex. He was raised in Skyrim and became a general under Cuhlecain before conquering the Reachmen. The Greybeards proclaimed him to be Dragonborn and foretold that he would unite Tamriel. After conquering Old Hrol'dan, Talos attracted new enemies, the Alessians, who claimed he was the reincarnation of Reman. The Alessians attempted to overthrow Talos, but were unsuccessful.
  • 00:15:00 In the year 2E 582, General Talos of Colovian legions marches south from Falkreath to confront the apparently invincible general Stormborn, who had provoked him by building an impregnable redoubt at Sancre Tor. The battle of Sancre Tor is a disaster for the Nord-Breton alliance, which underestimates the Colovians and is overwhelmed by Talos' army. The Nord-Breton nobles who remain in the fort betray their alliance and swear allegiance to Talos. The Skyrim generals join their rank and file in Stormcrown's army, and the High Rock battlemage command is summarily executed. Following his great victory, Talos takes a somber tour of Sancre Tor and finds the tomb of Emperor Reman III, which reveals the Amulet of Kings. With the Imperial heartland now under his control, Talos is declared Emperor of Tamriel.
  • 00:20:00 This video documentary tells the story of the rise of Emperor Tiber Septim and the unification of Tamriel under his rule.

  • 00:25:00 In the late second era, the Third Empire conquers Hammerfell, Cyrodiil, and Skyrim, and the Redguards are forced to unite under the rule of High King Thassad II. However, when Thassad dies, his son Prince A'tor takes control and old rivalries resurface, leading to civil war. Tiber Septim's window into the Redguard realm comes when Baron Volag sends ambassadors to plead for help. The Emperor agrees to help, and within the year the full might of the Imperial Legions is brought to bear upon Hammerfell. Prince A'tor puts up a fierce resistance but is eventually pushed into retreat with what remains of his navy to the last Crown Stronghold, the island of Stros M'kai. In 864, Stormcrown appoints his finest naval commander, Admiral Amiel Richton, to dislodge the last wedge of native resistance. Thus, the Imperial ‘New West Navy’, pride of Colovia, sails to Stros M'kai where they encounter the Royal Navy of Hammerfell, led by Prince A'tor himself, in the open waters just beyond the harbor of Port Hunding. Accounts of the composition of the opposing forces are sparse, but it is reasonable to
  • 00:30:00 This videodocuementary tells the history of the Septim Empire, from its formation to its fall. At the height of its power, the Empire conquered Hammerfell and much of Tamriel, but eventually faced revolts and was forced to sign treaties granting significant autonomy to the native populations.
  • 00:35:00 Tiber Septim conquers Morrowind and Cyrodiil, and arranges for Morrowind to join the Empire, with the proviso that Morrowind retains its own king and internal rule through a council of tribal chiefs. However, relations with the High Elves are difficult, as they are protected by a powerful navy and possess powerful sorcerers. Tiber eventually finds a way to power Numidium using the Heart of Lorkhan, and uses it to conquer Elsweyr.
  • 00:40:00 This documentary explores the history of the Septim Empire, which was founded by Tiber Septim. The empire was marked by peace and prosperity, but after Tiber Septim's death, a series of incompetent Emperors led to centuries of civil wars and rebellions. Emperor Uriel V put a stop to the unrest with a massive expedition of conquest, which inspired fear and awe amongst Tamriel's subjects.
  • 00:45:00 In 271 of the Third Era, an Imperial Fleet assembled at the Great Docks of Solitude and sailed northeast for the small and frigid isle of Roscrea. After a four-week journey, the Imperial expedition fleet landed on Roscrea’s south-eastern coast and began construction of a port outpost town and fortress named Crane Shore and Fort Uriel, respectively. The indigenous people of Roscrea were of the same stock as Skyrim’s Nords, and like the Nords, they were descendants of migrants from the now-frozen-over Atmora. However, by far the most hated cult on the island was the Dragon Cult. Just like on Skyrim, Dragons had once ruled over men on Roscrea, but both they and their sycophantic human worshippers had been driven off the island by Bear Cult Berserkers long ago. When a foreign navy landed on their shores, waving the proud Dragon banner that represented their Emperor’s ties to most holy Akatosh, the Roscreans prepared to repulse the intrusion of what they assumed were their ancient foes. During the month of Second Seed, a large warband of Bear Cult warriors, led by their chief Gundar White-Bear,
  • 00:50:00 The video documents the history of the Septim Empire, which spans over two thousand years. In the first era, the Septim Empire conquers Roscrea, a small island in the Padomaic Sea. In the third era, the Septim Empire conquers Black Harbor on the spice Island of Esrionet. In the fourth era, the Septim Empire conquers Ionith, a larger settlement better suited for dominating the surrounding countryside. So far, all has gone well.
  • 00:55:00 The Empire's foothold in Akavir led to a period of success, but eventually the Tsaesci began to harass the Imperials, leading to a series of storms that hindered the Imperials' attempt to resupply the expeditionary force. In 289, the Red fleet had arrived safely back to Black Harbour, but all attempts to return to Akavir were thwarted by storms. In the middle of the month of Sun's height, some Imperial scouts were apparently able to confirm that a large Tsaesci army had begun massing on the other side of a mountain range. The Snake-men, it seemed, had successfully played the long game and were now besieging both colonial outposts. By now, the best outcome was withdrawal, but some of the Imperial fleet had broken through the storms and was en route to Septimia to evacuate the survivors.

The documentary covers the history of the Septim Empire, from its founding to its eventual downfall. The Empire was a powerful force in Tamriel, but various factors led to its demise, most notably the Thalmor. The Thalmor were a political faction that attempted to annex territory but were unsuccessful, leading to resentment between the Imperials and the Redguards. In Skyrim, the worship of Talos caused great social chaos, resulting in the outlawing of the religion by the Empire. This led to a civil war and the eventual assassination of the High King, plunging the province into chaos.

  • 01:00:00 The documentary tells the history of the Septim Empire, focusing on the reign of Uriel V. Uriel V was a successful warrior-king, but his reign was marked by disaster when he led an ill-fated campaign into Akavir. His successor, Uriel VI, was able to maintain order through the use of the Blades, a special unit of elite warriors descended from Reman's Akaviri Dragonguard. When Uriel VII became emperor, he was faced with a series of crises, including the rise of the Dark Elves and Argonians, the Skyrim-High Rock territorial dispute, and the Numidium crisis. One of the Emperor's anonymous heroes, the Champion of Daggerfall, was instrumental in resolving these issues.
  • 01:05:00 This video discusses the history of the Septim Empire, focusing on the events leading to the assassination of the three sons of the Emperor in 3E 433. The Nerevarine, a reincarnation of Indoril Nerevar, is chosen to restore balance, and Mankar Camoran, a High Elf, becomes associated with the Daedric Prince of Destruction, Mehrunes Dagon, and creates a new, insane vision for the world. The assassination of the three sons leads to the rise of the Mythic Dawn cult, which plans to restore Lorkhan and bring about the end of the world. The Nerevarine, aided by the Amulet of Kings, defeats the Mythic Dawn and restores peace to the empire.
  • 01:10:00 The video documents the history of the Septim Empire, which began when a prisoner delivered the Amulet of Kings to Jauffre at Weynon Priory.

  • 01:15:00 The videodocuments the history of the Septim Empire, which began with the rise of Tiber Septim and ended with the Great Thalmor War. Tiber Septim was a divinely-sanctioned conqueror who used magic to disguise himself and infiltrate secret meetings. He left behind something important: the Mysterium Xarxes. Through the very examination of Dagon's infernal tome, Martin deduced that he could reopen a portal to Mankar's location in Oblivion with the help of three artifacts: a Daedric Artifact, a Great Welkynd Stone, and the Blood of the Divines. The Hero of Kvatch found an artifact of one of the Daedric Princes, recovered the Great Welkynd Stone from the ancient ruins of Miscarcand, and obtained the blood of the divines through a comic loophole. However, one more artifact was needed before a portal could be opened to Mankar, and so Martin made the risky decision to allow a Great Gate to open outside the city of Bruma, enabling the Daedra to launch a full invasion of the city. The battle outside Bruma was brutal, and Emperor Martin, donned in the armor of his forefather Talos, at
  • 01:20:00 The video discusses the history of the Septim Empire, including the events that led to its downfall. It explains that the Thalmor, a political faction that rose to power during the Oblivion Crisis, played a significant role in the Empire's downfall.
  • 01:25:00 In this documentary, the history of the Septim Empire is explained, starting with the origins of the empire and its connections to the Elder Scrolls games. After the Oblivion Crisis, the Thalmor seized control of Valenwood and began to expand northward. In 98, the moons Masser and Secunda disappeared, leading to disaster for the Khajiit of Elsweyr and leading to the Thalmor's claim of restoration. In 115, a Thalmor-backed coup in southern Tamriel succeeded in splitting the province in two, and the Aldmeri Dominion was reborn as the undisputed masters of southern Tamriel. In contrast, when Titus Mede II ascended to the throne in 168, he inherited an Empire half the size it had once been. In response to the Aldmeri Dominion's demands, the Emperor rejected them and mobilized the Empire's armies, but the Dominion was already prepared and easily defeated them. The documentary ends with the march of thirst, in which the Imperials were forced to retreat through the Alik'r Desert due to the combined forces of the Aldmeri Dominion and native Hammerfell resistance.
  • 01:30:00 In 172, Thalmor forces captured Anvil, Hegathe, and Bravil, and by 4E 174 Cyrodiil was under Thalmor control. In order to protect Hammerfell, Emperor Titus II ordered General Decianus to retreat to a hidden position near Chorrol and await further orders. When Decianus disobeyed and abandoned Hammerfell to Lady Arannelya's tyrannies, the Thalmor launched an all-out assault on Cyrodiil, capturing the capital and exiling the Emperor. The battle of the Red Ring ensued, in which Titus II's three army groups successfully repelled the Thalmor.
  • 01:35:00 The video covers the history of the Septim Empire, from the founding of the empire to its downfall. The Empire was founded by Tiber Septim, and he was able to conquer most of Tamriel. However, the war against the Aldmeri Dominion was a long and difficult one, and by the end the Empire was weakened and in debt. The treaty that ended the war was heavily biased in favor of the Thalmor, and Hammerfell was ceded to them. The Alik'r desert warriors were able to fight the Elves and keep Hammerfell, despite the treaty.
  • 01:40:00 This video covers the history of the Septim Empire, which was a powerful empire that spanned many different civilizations in Tamriel.

Meanwhile, in Skyrim, the worship of Talos caused great social chaos, resulting in the outlawing of the religion by the Empire. This led to a civil war and the eventual assassination of the High King, leading to the province of Skyrim plunging into chaos.
