The Second Era: typo
In {{Year|2E 406}}, a salacious scandal rocked Valenwood: the sleepy trading post of {{Lore Link|Cormount}} of Grahtwood was likely home to numerous potential heirs of the Camoran Dynasty, as Camoran rulers had evidently been journeying to the secluded town for untold years to engage in extramarital relations. Cormount's population nearly doubled in a week, and weddings became a daily occurrences for months, as many Bosmer sought to sire children with a noble lineage despite the ignoble circumstances. The news even brought many Bosmer who had never lived in Valenwood back to their spiritual home. These migrants, who largely came from Cyrodiil and thus did not follow the Green Pact, were shocking to the established Bosmer of Grahtwood, and tensions brewed for years as a result. Finally, in {{Year|2E 420}}, the migrants' village, {{Lore Link|New Joy}}, was burned to the ground for provocations that have been lost to history. The incident eventually inspired the formation of the Blacksap Movement in {{Year|2E 489}}, a Cormount-based cultural organization which hoped to formalize the Bosmeri approach to the Green Pact and thereby prevent any further tragic misunderstandings.{{ref|name=TROC|{{Cite book|The Rise of Cormount}}}}

During the {{Lore Link|Alliance War}} circa {{Year|2E 582}}, the Bosmer became part of the {{Lore Link|Aldmeri Dominion}}, along with their allies the Altmer and the {{Lore Link|Khajiit}}. The alliance was rocky, though the {{Lore Link|Thalmor}} Committee on Alliance Relations encouraged tolerance of the Bosmer's cultural eccentricities to help keep the Dominion together.{{ref|name=TH|{{Cite book|Thalmor Handbill}}}}{{ref|name=ASIV}} {{Lore Link|Elden Root}} was made the capital of the Dominion, and drew many new migrants as a result (this also became the impetus for plans to establish a gladiatorial arena in the city).{{ref|name=WMTM|{{Cite book|Want More than Middens?|ns=Online}}}} Many Bosmer saw the Dominion as their only chance at survival.{{ref|name=LTC|{{Cite book|Letter to Calahawn|ns=Online}}}} However, many pthersothers remained resentful of the alliance, believing the Dominion had "polluted" Valenwood.{{ref|name=WCN|{{Cite book|What Comes Next|ns=Online}}}} Resentment may have also festered due to the "Massacre at Cormount", wherein the Grahtwood city was apparently razed by Dominion soldiers utilizing particularly offensive tactics.{{ref|name=TMAC|{{Cite book|The Massacre at Cormount}}}}
In {{Year|2E 830}}, to secure their border from attack, the Altmer, using an old treaty and encroachment from Colovia for justification, invaded Valenwood and reestablished the Aldmeri Dominion.{{ref|name=PGE1Ald}}{{ref|name=PGE3V}}{{ref |name=PGE3Summer|{{Cite book|PGE|3|Summerset Isle}}}} Details on the circumstances leading up to this are disputed,{{ref|name=PGE1Ald}} but they formed the Thalmor and apparently brought peace to Valenwood until the Dominion was absorbed by the {{Lore Link|Third Empire}} of {{Lore Link|Tiber Septim}}.{{ref|name=PGE3V}} During the {{Lore Link|War of Rihad}} in {{Year|2E 862}}, Colovian armies employ the Bosmer as archers, though they proved to be prone to desertion.{{ref|name=PGE1Ald}}
