Jehanna, also spelled Jehenna or Jelhana[1], is a major city of northeastern High Rock, and one of High Rock's eight kingdoms.[2] The city was invaded by the Nords during the War of the Bend'r-mahk in 3E 397, who seized large tracts of land that had belonged to High Rock and Hammerfell, claiming that they were once traditionally kingdoms of Skyrim.[3][4][5] It is mentioned in the popular series of novels A Dance in Fire as the home of a disgruntled Nordic diplomat who was sent to Valenwood.[6] In 2E 582, a jetty bearing the name Jehanna Docks was situated in a similar location on the coast of northern Wrothgar.[7]

Notes[edit]

  • The 'Jehanna road' is also the name of the road leading from Bangkorai to Wrothgar.[8]
  • Given that the War of the Bend'r-mahk was instigated in order to reclaim "old kingdoms" of Skyrim,[5] it is plausible that there were once earlier Nordic settlements in the region, which would predate the jetty that was present in the Second Era.
  • Arena was originally conceived as a fighting game featuring a tournament that took the player to each of Tamriel's cities to challenge different gladiatorial teams. According to a file from that stage of development left behind in the final game, Jehanna's gladiatorial team would have been called "the Iceblades".[UOL 1]
