Kvatch was a city in the western-central region of Cyrodiil, situated on one of the highest mountains south of the Jerall Mountains. It was completely destroyed by an invasion of daedra under the command of the Daedric prince Mehrunes Dagon, during the Oblivion Crisis at the end of the Third Era.

It was during this event that the last surviving heir to the assassinated emperor Uriel Septim VII was found alive here. This lead to the ascendancy of Martin Septim to the throne as the last Dragonborn Emperor of the Septim line, and his legendary sacrifice in the Temple in the Imperial City, thwarting Mehrunes Dagon in mystical combat.
