“I have no hatred for the races of Man, but they are young. Like all children, they are driven by emotion. They lack the wisdom that comes with age. I would sooner place an Altmer infant on the Ruby Throne than surrender Tamriel to their capricious whims.”
―Queen Ayrenn, Your Queen Commands
Queen Ayrenn is an Altmer to appear in The Elder Scrolls Online.
She is the Queen of Alinor, and leads the forces of the Aldmeri Dominion against the other Alliances to gain control of the Ruby Throne.
She is young for an Altmer, only 28 years old, but she spent much of the first part of her life roaming Tamriel, seeking adventure and furthering her education. Ayrenn helped restore order to Elsweyr following the outbreak of the Khahaten Flu.
She also helped the Bosmer King Aeradan repel the Colovian invasion after the recent civil war between the Camorans.
It is said that she is intelligent and honorable, with a genuine humility rarely seen in other Altmer, but she is also a decisive leader with a stubborn streak.
Ayrenn was the daughter of King Hidellith and his wife Kinlady Tuinden, and was born on the 5th of Second Seed in the year 555 of the Second Era. Her birth and naming was ordained by the Scrolls of Praxis, to which all of Summerset, Auridon, and Artaeum celebrated her birth for fifty-five days.
Often, when she was younger, she would become so engrossed in her independent studies that she would go missing for several days, only to return with unusual knowledge and mastery of remarkable skills.
Some time in the month of Evening Star in 2E 563, when she was only 8 years old, her whole family gathered at Crystal Tower to celebrate her matriculation to the Sapiarchs’ Labrinth to study Altmeri Regal Praxis and Ceremoniarchy for 3,555 days. However, somewhere between the Palace and Tower she disappeared, and despite a 17th Degree Enquiry by the Justiciars, she was nowhere to be found. Her younger brother, Prince Naemon, was named heir to the throne, and in 2E 565 he matriculated into the Labyrinth.
Then, one day in the year 2E 580, word came from Port Velyn in Valenwood that Ayrenn had returned and was on her way to Auridon by swan ship. After her return she announced that she was prepared, as the eldest heir, to assume the Throne of Alinor, and the High Justiciar affirmed that this was her right. During her adventures she had learnt much, and she was crowned Queen Ayrenn on the 7th of Frost Fall in the year 580.
