This article is about the castle on Vvardenfell. For the city on the mainland, see Old Ebonheart.
Castle Ebonheart was the seat of Imperial authority on Vvardenfell. From this city, the Duke of Ebonheart, Vedam Dren, and his Grand Council determined law and policy for the Vvardenfell administrative district. The Imperial Chapels served the Duke, his retainers and the castle's garrisons, and were also an administrative center for Imperial Cult presence on Vvardenfell. A unit of the Imperial Guard protected the Duke, and the Hawkmoth Legion was also garrisoned within the walls of the castle.
The name of the settlement was taken from Old Ebonheart. It was built sometime after Vvardenfell was opened for settlement in 3E 414 to act as the new Imperial capital of the island. Much of the business in Vvardenfell which concerned either the Empire or House Hlaalu was conducted in Ebonheart, as the Hlaalu Grandmaster was the Duke himself.
Because the East Empire Company was chartered directly by the Emperor, its offices, warehouses and docks were adjacent to the castle, and its security was assured by the Imperial garrisons. The provinces of Skyrim and Black Marsh maintained diplomatic missions in Ebonheart, the latter mainly in concern for its citizens, due to the fact that the Morrowind province was exempt from the abolition of slavery.
- The city of Ebonheart was featured in TES III: Morrowind.
