Shornhelm, circa 2E 582

Shornhelm, sometimes spelled Sharnhelm, is a city in northern High Rock which stands at the center of one of the eight kingdoms of the region.[1] It is known for being the Keeper of the Crypt of Hearts.

The city was controlled by House Dorell of the Breton nobility in the 24th century of the First Era.[2]

In 2E 542, after helping to defeat a horde Reachmen led by Durcorach the Black Drake, Shornhelm, along with Daggerfall, Camlorn, Evermore and Wayrest, signed the first Daggerfall Covenant.[3][4]

In 3E 277, the kingdom was offered to Andorak Lariat in order to persuade him to drop his claim to the Imperial throne. The Lariat family reigned in the kingdom from that point on.[5]


  • 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, Shornhelm's gladiatorial team would have been called "the War Mages".[UOL 1]
