Cheydinhal is a major, walled city in north-eastern Cyrodiil. It is one of the few cities in the Imperial Province to have a Dunmer for a ruler (near the end of the Third Era, during the Oblivion Crisis). It is also somewhat infamous for the fact that it once held a major Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary, which in fact was once purified by a member who shortly went on to become the Listener of the Brotherhood.
Cheydinhal is considered one of the most beautiful of all the cities in Cyrodiil, and its architecture was a fine mixture of wood and stone. It is particularly beautifully landscaped with a stream running through its centre.
