The Kingdom of Wayrest is the name of a province in the Iliac Bay region, and is also the name of the capital of that province, the city of Wayrest. The city of Wayrest was once home to a gladiatorial team called the Highlanders.[OOG 1] The province of Wayrest is located to the east of the Iliac Bay, at the mouth of the Bjoulsae River in High Rock. It is adjacent to the provinces of Menevia, Orsinium, Gavaudon, Mournoth, and Satakalaam. It has always been seen as a rival to Daggerfall, which was already well established when it first was founded as a sleepy fishing village at the mouth of the Bjoulsae River. Wayrest, however, prospered greatly after the Fall of Orsinium in 1E 980 when the commerce of all of Tamriel began to pass through its gates. Today the city can boast the largest and richest population in High Rock. Bretons are native to this province.
In 2E 541, the city was besieged by a horde of Reachmen, led by Durcorach the Black Drake, for fifty-seven days. After the Reachmen were defeated, Wayrest, along with Daggerfall, Shornhelm, Evermore and Camlorn, signed the first Daggerfall Covenant.
Emperor Cassynder and his step brother Uriel Septim IV had been kings of Wayrest before they took the throne of Empire.
