巴兰兹雅女王传记

第二卷

——斯滕·甘伯吉(Stern Gamboge),帝国文书

本系列的第一卷讲述了巴兰兹雅原本为哀伤要塞的王位继承人,直到其父反叛泰伯·塞普丁一世陛下,为晨风省带来毁灭。幸得皇帝陛下的善心所至,还是孩子的巴兰兹雅并没有同她的父母一同覆灭,而是被交于帝国忠诚者暗沼的斯纹伯爵养育。她长成了一名美丽又虔诚的孩子,对监护人的照料很是信任。然而这份信任却被斯纹伯爵家一个坏心的孤儿马僮擅用了。在她十六岁那年,他编造谎言,骗她同他一起逃出暗沼。在沿途经历了许多冒险之后,他们在裂谷城,一座天际省靠近晨风边境的城市安顿了下来。

马僮斯特劳倒不是彻头彻尾的邪恶。他以自己自私的方式爱着巴兰兹雅,而欺骗是他能想到的唯一把她捆在身边的方法。而她,自然,对他只有友情,但他希望总有一天她能对他动心。他想要买一座小农场,定居下来后再有一段舒适的婚姻,但在那时他赚的钱仅够他们吃饭租房而已。

只在裂谷城呆了很短一段时间之后,斯特劳和一个大胆却卑鄙的虎人盗贼混到了一起,这个虎人名叫瑟里斯,计划要洗劫城中心帝国司令官的住所。瑟里斯说他的客户,一个帝国叛徒,会为他们在这里找到的任何资讯出大价钱。巴兰兹雅恰巧偷听到了这个计划,她被彻底吓呆了。她从她们所住的房子偷溜出去,绝望地走上了裂谷城的大街,为她对帝国的忠诚与她对朋友们的友爱矛盾不已。

到最终,对帝国的忠诚战胜了私人友情,于是她来到司令的住宅,公开了自己的真实身份,并向他揭露了她朋友们的计划。司令听完了她的故事,赞扬了她的勇气,并向她保证她不会受到任何伤害。他不是别人,正是欣玛楚斯将军,自她失踪之后就在乡间地毯式搜索她的行踪,而此时刚到达裂谷城不久,依旧满面风尘。他将她置于自己的保护下,并告诉她她不但不会被卖掉,与之相反,她将要在年满十八岁时重新成为哀伤要塞的女王。在那之前,她都要在新建好的帝都同塞普丁家族共同生活,在那里她将学习政务方面的课程,也将正式在宫廷露面。

在帝都,巴兰兹雅同正值统治中期的皇帝泰伯·塞普丁成为了朋友。泰伯的孩子们,尤其是他的长子与继承人派拉吉乌斯,爱她如同自己的姐妹。那时的歌曲高声赞扬她的美丽、贞洁、聪慧与好学。在她十八岁生日当天,全帝都都为她送别,由此她将回到故土。尽管他们为她的离去悲伤不已,但所有人都知道她已经为成为哀伤要塞王国统治者的光辉命运做好了准备。

Biography of Queen Barenziah, Volume 2
by Stern Gamboge, Imperial Scribe
A factual biography of Queen Barenziah, Volume 2


Note: This book exists in SkyrimOblivion and Morrowind. The only differences being their inventory names, and the Skyrim version uses the spelling "Riften" instead of "Rifton". A similar but not identical book also exists in Daggerfall. See Biography of Queen Barenziah, Vol 2 for the Daggerfall version

The first volume of this series told the story of Barenziah's origin-heiress to the throne ofMournhold until her father rebelled against His Excellency Tiber Septim I and brought ruin to the province of Morrowind. Thanks largely to the benevolence of the Emperor, the child Barenziah was not destroyed with her parents, but reared by Count Sven of Darkmoor, a loyal Imperial trustee. She grew up into a beautiful and pious child, trustful of her guardian's care. This trust, however, was exploited by a wicked orphan stable boy at Count Sven's estate, who with lies and fabrications tricked her into fleeing Darkmoor with him when she turned sixteen. After many adventures on the road, they settled in Riften, a Skyrim city near the Morrowind borders.
The stable boy, Straw, was not altogether evil. He loved Barenziah in his own selfish fashion, and deception was the only way he could think of that would cement possession of her. She, of course, felt only friendship toward him, but he was hopeful that she would gradually change her mind. He wanted to buy a small farm and settle down into a comfortable marriage, but at the time his earnings were barely enough to feed and shelter them.
After only a short time in Riften, Straw fell in with a bold, villainous Khajiit thief named Therris, who proposed that they rob the Imperial Commandant's house in the central part of the city. Therris said that he had a client, a traitor to the Empire, who would pay well for any information they could gather there. Barenziah happened to overhear this plan and was appalled. She stole away from their rooms and walked the streets of Riften in desperation, torn between her loyalty to the Empire and her love for her friends.
In the end, loyalty to the Empire prevailed over personal friendship, and she approached the Commandant's house, revealed her true identity, and warned him of her friends' plan. The Commandant listened to her tale, praised her courage, and assured her that no harm would come to her. He was none other than General Symmachus, who had been scouring the countryside in search of her since her disappearance, and had just arrived in Riften, hot in pursuit. He took her into his custody, and informed her that, far from being sent away to be sold, she was to be reinstated as the Queen of Mournhold as soon as she turned eighteen. Until that time, she was to live with the Septim family in the newly built Imperial City, where she would learn something of government and be presented at the Imperial Court.
At the Imperial City, Barenziah befriended the Emperor Tiber Septim during the middle years of his reign. Tiber's children, particularly his eldest son and heir Pelagius, came to love her as a sister. The ballads of the day praised her beauty, chastity, wit, and learning. On her eighteenth birthday, the entire Imperial City turned out to watch her farewell procession preliminary to her return to her native land. Sorrowful as they were at her departure, all knew that she was ready for her glorious destiny as sovereign of the kingdom of Mournhold.
