Culotte is an Ayleid ruin located along the banks of the Upper Niben, in the Heartlands of Cyrodiil.

During the Alessian Slave Rebellion, Culotte became home to one of the Ten Ancestors, Ayleid statues originally held in the White-Gold Tower which were dispersed to cities across Cyrodiil for safekeeping.[1] Culotte subsequently fell into ruin after the Ayleids' downfall.

The ruins of the settlement were once known to attract undead of all kinds. Circa 2E 582, the nearby settlement of Cropsford was occasionally threatened by the undead that flocked to Culotte, prompting the townsfolk to periodically clear the ruins.[2] Eventually Culotte was cleared of undead. In 3E 433, the Hero of Kvatch entered the ruins and retrieved the ancient Ayleid statue, causing the dead to rise from their graves and once again plague the ruins. The statue was later sold to Umbacano.[3]


  • The nearby Culotte Bridge that once spanned the Upper Niben was named after the ruins.
