巴兰兹雅女王传记

第一卷

——斯滕·甘伯吉(Stern Gamboge),帝国文书

在第二纪元末期,一个女婴,巴兰兹雅,生于如今乃是帝国晨风省的哀伤要塞王室家庭。她在与黑精灵王室孩童身份相配的奢华与安全中被细心养育,直到她年满五岁。那一年正是泰姆瑞尔的第一位皇帝,伟大的泰伯·塞普丁一世陛下,要求晨风堕落的统治者向他投降,并接受帝国改革。对他们自吹自擂的魔法充满信心,黑精灵无礼地拒绝了这一要求,直到泰伯·塞普丁大兵压境。这时候倒开始渴求和平的丹莫迅速与帝国签署了停战协议,但在协议签署前还是经历了几场会战,其中一场把哀伤要塞变成了废墟,如今这城市已更名为阿玛莱西亚。

小公主巴兰兹雅和她的保姆在废墟中被发现了。帝国将军欣玛楚斯本人也是一名黑精灵,他向泰伯·塞普丁建言说这孩子未来可能自有其价值,于是她被送到一名最近刚从帝国军队退役的忠诚支持者手中,由他进行抚养。

斯文·埃德文森在退役之时受封伯爵;他的领地,暗沼,是位于天际省中部的一座小镇。斯文伯爵与他的妻子将公主视如己出,用心安排以确保她接受了合适的教育——而更为重要的,则是要将服从、谨慎、忠诚与虔诚的帝国美德植根于这孩子的心中。不久之后,她便身心皆已准备好成为晨风新统治阶级中的一员了。

少女巴兰兹雅美丽、优雅而聪慧。她生性和善,令其养父母及五个年轻儿子着实喜悦,而那五子均将她视为亲姐。除去她的容貌,她与她所处阶级其他少女的唯一不同之处就在于她对林地与田野有着强烈的共鸣,惯于时而丢下家务职责而去旷野漫步。

一直到十六周岁,巴兰兹雅都很是幸福与满足,而那一年有一个坏心的孤儿马僮,巴兰兹雅原本是出于同情与他结交,他却告诉她说他偷听到了她监护人的阴谋。斯文伯爵和一个赤色守卫来访者要把她卖到瑞哈德作小妾,因为她的黑色皮肤使得没有诺德人或是布莱顿人愿意娶她为妻,而她在外国养大也使得不会有黑精灵愿意接受她。

“我要怎么办?”可怜的少女说,哀泣涟涟,颤抖簌簌,只因她完全在纯真与信任的环境长大,未曾想到她的马僮朋友会欺骗她。

那个坏男孩名叫斯特劳,告诉她说如果她珍视自身的德行那就必须逃跑,但他会同她一起逃跑,由他来保护她。尽管很悲伤,巴兰兹雅还是同意了这项计划;于是就在当夜,她扮装成男孩,而后二人一起逃向了最近的城市银流城。在那里度过几天之后,他们成功获得了一份为一支算不得名誉的商队作护卫的工作。商队从小路向东行进,希望能逃过大道上的合法帝国过路税款。于是二人一路躲避追击直到他们到达裂谷城,而在那里他们又停留了一段时间。他们在裂谷城感到很安全,因为此地靠近晨风边境,黑精灵极其平常不过。

Biography of Queen Barenziah, Volume 1
by Stern Gamboge, Imperial Scribe
A factual biography of Queen Barenziah, Volume 1


Note: This book exists in SkyrimOblivion and Morrowind, the only difference being their inventory names. A similar but not identical book also exists in Daggerfall. See Biography of Queen Barenziah, Vol 1 for the Daggerfall version

Late in the Second Era, a girl-child, Barenziah, was born to the rulers of the kingdom ofMournhold in what is now the Imperial Province of Morrowind. She was reared in all the luxury and security befitting a royal Dark Elven child until she reached five years of age. At that time, His Excellency Tiber Septim I, the first Emperor of Tamriel, demanded that the decadent rulers of Morrowind yield to him and institute imperial reforms. Trusting to their vaunted magic, the Dark Elves impudently refused until Tiber Septim's army was on the borders. An Armistice was hastily signed by the now-eager Dunmer, but not before there were several battles, one of which laid waste to Mournhold, now called Almalexia.
Little Princess Barenziah and her nurse were found among the wreckage. The Imperial GeneralSymmachus, himself a Dark Elf, suggested to Tiber Septim that the child might someday be valuable, and she was therefore placed with a loyal supporter who had recently retired from the Imperial Army.
Sven Advensen had been granted the title of Count upon his retirement; his fiefdom, Darkmoor, was a small town in central Skyrim. Count Sven and his wife reared the princess as their own daughter, seeing to it that she was educated appropriately-and more importantly, that the imperial virtues of obedience, discretion, loyalty, and piety were instilled in the child. In short, she was made fit to take her place as a member of the new ruling class of Morrowind.
The girl Barenziah grew in beauty, grace, and intelligence. She was sweet-tempered, a joy to her adoptive parents and their five young sons, who loved her as their elder sister. Other than her appearance, she differed from young girls of her class only in that she had a strong empathy for the woods and fields, and was wont to escape her household duties to wander there at times.
Barenziah was happy and content until her sixteenth year, when a wicked orphan stable-boy, whom she had befriended out of pity, told her he had overheard a conspiracy between her guardian, Count Sven, and a Redguard visitor to sell her as a concubine in Rihad, as no Nord or Breton would marry her on account of her black skin, and no Dark Elf would have her because of her foreign upbringing.
“Whatever shall I do?” the poor girl said, weeping and trembling, for she had been brought up in innocence and trust, and it never occurred to her that her friend the stable-boy would lie to her.
The wicked boy, who was called Straw, said that she must run away if she valued her virtue, but that he would come with her as her protector. Sorrowfully, Barenziah agreed to this plan; and that very night, she disguised herself as a boy and the pair escaped to the nearby city of Whiterun. After a few days there, they managed to get jobs as guards for a disreputable merchant caravan. The caravan was heading east by side roads in a mendacious attempt to elude the lawful tolls charged on the imperial highways. Thus the pair eluded pursuit until they reached the city of Rifton, where they ceased their travels for a time. They felt safe in Rifton, close as it was to the Morrowind border so that Dark Elves were enough of a common sight.
