Markarth, also called Markarth Side, is a city in western Skyrim and the capital of the hold known as the Reach.[1] It is noted for its Dwemer architecture and the extensive ruins of a Dwemer city, Nchuand-Zel, beneath Understone Keep. The city is often noted for the Imperial College of the Voice founded by Tiber Septim, though no trace of this college can be found by the Fourth Era.[2][3]


Control of Markarth and the Reach has changed many times. Markarth was inhabited by the Dwemer until their disappearance in 1E 700. The natives of the Reach, a people of mixed Breton descent, assumed control of the city and the surrounding lands. After the collapse of the Second Empire, Markath, along with the whole Reach, was ruled by the Reachmen under the Despot of Markarth. The Reachmen conspired with Mannimarco and the Tharns to further Molag Bal's Planemeld, and Nchuand-Zel was occupied by Daedra. Vanus Galerion stormed this complex some time before 2E 581 while hunting Mannimarco.[4]

During the time of Tiber Septim, the Nords came to power and subjugated the natives. In 4E 174, while the Empire was distracted by the Great War with the Aldmeri Dominion, the natives seized the Reach with little resistance and broke away from Skyrim to form a short-lived independent kingdom with Markarth as its capital.[5] Ulfric Stormcloak gathered a militia and toppled the natives in 4E 176, reestablishing Nordic dominance over the Reach.[5] Desperate and alienated in their own lands, the natives began to call themselves the Forsworn and turned to their ancient traditions and rituals for help to rebel against the Nords. The Forsworn continue to wage a guerrilla war in the Reach as of 4E 201.[3]
