War of Succession
The War of Succession lasted for over 50 years from 1E 369 to 1E 420. The war was sparked by the death of King Borgas of Skyrim during the Wild Hunt in 1E 369, and the Moot did not choose Jarl Hanse of Winterhold to succeed him.
The war proved very costly for Skyrim and the provinces of High Rock, Morrowind and Cyrodiil were all lost. , and cities such as Windhelm were sacked. The Pact of Chieftains finally brought an end to the conflict in 1E 420.
