The Cape of the Blue Divide, or simply the Blue Divide[1] is the body of water found between the provinces of the Summerset Isles and Valenwood, and the general area of the Second Aldmeri Dominion. The Blue Divide's general scope is largely unknown, the island of Stros M'Kai is a strategic location, found north of the Cape of the Blue Divide. It was because of this the island-kingdom was targeted by the Third Empire during their conquest of Hammerfell in the Tiber Wars. It was there closest foothold to the Blue Divide, the waters of the Aldmeri Dominion.[2] The Colovian made their earliest voyages around the Cape of the Blue Divide, and the Iliac Bay, sacking various Nedic settlements.[3] The Cape of the Blue Divide was also the general location of the War of the Blue Divide, occurring in the Imperial Simulacrum between the provinces of Valenwood and the Summerset Isles.[4]
