Dragonsreach earned its name when the ancient Nord hero Olaf One-Eye imprisoned his foe, the great dragon Numinex, within the palace.

— Game description

Dragonsreach is Jarl Balgruuf the Greater's keep in Whiterun.


Dragonsreach Great Porch

Unknown to many but the most educated loremaster, the Great Porch was actually constructed by king Olaf One-Eye to trap a dragon, which for many years was his captive pet.

Dragonsreach Dungeon

This is where the jailcells are located. It can be accessed from the lower levels of Dragonsreach, or by an exterior door at the back of the palace.
