High King Gellir

Resided in Skyrim

Gellir was a High King of Skyrim in the First Era. Little is known about him or his reign, except that he ruled at least several decades after King Harald, whose reign ended in 1E 221. He led the Nords to conquer several Dwemer city-states, including Mzulft, though the Dwemer would retake them about a century later.[1][2]

Nordic chroniclers have ascribed his surprising success to inspired tactics and the blessings of Shor. Others assert the Dwemer were in a weakened state due to an ongoing civil war, which paved the way for Gellir's subsequent conquests.[1]
