Almalexia, City of Light, City of Magic, Capital of Morrowind and home to the largest urban population center east of the Imperial City. Almalexia is a sprawling and massive city in the shape of a ring, with Mournhold, the capital’s inner city, at the heart of it all. Named after the Goddess of Love and the Lady of Mercy, this is the city of Almalexia’s home, residing in the central temple compound, a deity among mortals. Far from being just the seat of Almalexia’s throne and the capital of Morrowind, the city of Almalexia also serves as the center of Great House Indoril and their vast, though dwindling, domains.
A city of beauty, as well as religion, culture, and the arts, thousands flock to this great capital of the Dunmer. Pilgrims come from all parts of Morrowind to worship at Almalexia’s temples, students come to learn at the city’s grand schools, and citizens from all over the Empire come to trade, tour and explore this massive and ancient capital. From the sights and sounds of Almalexia’s busy waterways and canals, to the ringing of temple bells and merchant’s scales, and the beauty of Almalexia’s gardens and parks, this is one grand city that provides numerous views and scenic overlooks that are well worth a visit.
Tamriel Rebuilt released Mournhold as a part of the Tamriel Rebuilt Version 15.10 Release in October of 2015.
