Ice Blade of the Monarch

The Ice Blade of the Monarch is truly one of Tamriel's most prized artifacts. Legend has it that the Evil Archmage Almion Celmo enchanted the claymore of a great warrior with the soul of a Frost Monarch, a stronger form of the more common Frost Atronach. The warrior, Thurgnarr Assi, was to play a part in the assassination of a great king in a far off land, and become the new leader. The assassination failed and the Archmage was imprisoned. The Ice Blade freezes all who feel its blade. The Blade circulates from owner to owner, never settling in one place for long.Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

The Ice Blade of the Monarch is carried by Llaren Terano, who can be found in the arena of Rotheran, a stronghold south of Dagon Fel on the island of Sheogorad. This weapon is needed for the quest of the same name.
