Empress Regent Clivia Tharn
|Race and Gender||Imperial Female|
|Appears in||ESO, Legends|
Clivia Tharn was the ruler of the Empire of Cyrodiil during the Interregnum. A member of the prominent Tharn family, born to Abnur Tharn and his seventh wife, Pulasia, and Abnur's sixteenth daughter overall. She married Leovic of the Longhouse Emperors, and served as his consort. When Leovic was overthrown and killed in a violent rebellion for legalizing Daedra worship in the Empire, his usurper, Duke Varen Aquilarios of Chorrol, wed Clivia to consolidate his rule. In 2E 578, Varen mysteriously disappeared during a calamity known as the Soulburst, and Clivia was quickly declared Empress Regent of the Empire in his stead. Mannimarco, who had orchestrated the Soulburst, became the power behind the Ruby Throne, turning Clivia to worship Molag Bal and manipulating her into expelling the Mages Guild from the Imperial City so that his Worm Cult could operate freely. As of 2E 582, Clivia's fate is unknown; she is not among the known survivors of the Daedric invasion of the Imperial City, and one of Molag Bal's servants, Molag Kena, impersonated her to gain access to the White-Gold Tower in order to carry out the "Planemeld Obverse" ritual.
