Firsthold, circa 2E 582

Firsthold (alternatively spelled First Hold) is the oldest, and still one of the most prominent, cities on Auridon, the second largest island of the Summerset Isles.

Gleaming spires come into view when in sight of Firsthold. High cliff palaces of the ancient capitol, and the Abecean Sea, can be seen from the royal palace balcony. The cathedrals of Firsthold are devoted to Auri-El. The great river Diceto passes through the royal parks of the city where there are also hedge mazes. The gleaming spires of Firsthold, seen at dawn's light in the Firsthold Revolt, may be a reference to architecture similar to Alinor, which is described as "straight and glimmering" and that the towers are "designed to catch the light of the sun".

Vanus Galerion, a Psijic of Artaeum, student of the famed Iachesis, and founder of the Mages Guild, first began operating out of Firsthold. Almost immediately after the guild was formed it had to hire guards, and the knightly Order of the Lamp was formed the following year.

The Great Orrery at Firsthold, whose spheres are made up of genuine celestial mineral gathered by travelers during the Merethic Era, is the only legacy of the Sun Birds of Alinor. Their expeditions to Aetherius are among the most famous attempts in history, although they were eventually dissolved due to the untenable expenditures required to reach magic by magicka.

The noted scholar Ahrtabazus published "The Faerie Chain" in Firsthold in 2E 456.

High Councilor and later Potentate Ocato of the Third Empire was born here.

During the final years of the Third Era, Firsthold was under the rule of king Karoodil and queen Morgiah.


  • 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, First Hold's gladiatorial team would have been called "the Reapers".
