Eventually, the Bosmer would be united under the leadership of {{Lore Link|Eplear|King Eplear}}, whose conquest of the wilderness and founding of the {{Lore Link|Camoran Dynasty}} heralded the start of the First Era. They made a formal trade treaty with the {{Lore Link|Alessian Empire}} in {{Year|1E 340}}, though it would only last for several decades before breaking down into on-and-off border skirmishes with {{Lore Link|Colovia}} for most of the First Era.{{ref|name=PGE3V}}
 
The earliest known Wild Hunt occurred in {{Year|1E 369}}, which ended with the death of the {{Lore Link|Nord}} High King {{Lore Link|Borgas}}.{{ref|name=PGE3V}}{{ref|name=AHOD|{{Cite book|A History of Daggerfall}}}} This assassination can be viewed as an act of self-defense, though perhaps proactive, as Borgas had been journeying to {{Lore Link|Cyrodiil}} to rally support for a joint war against Valenwood. Another Wild Hunt would not occur again until the {{Lore Link|Third Era}},{{ref|name=PGE3V}} though whether one or more occurred then is not clear. After the Bosmer were devastated by the {{Lore Link|Thrassian Plague}} in {{Year|1E 2417}}, they were absorbed by the {{Lore Link|Second Empire}}. The Empire, in their usual fashion, divided power in Valenwood amongst several districts to ensure they would not unite against Imperial rule.{{ref|name=PGE3V}}

In {{Year|1E 2920}}, the last year of the First Era, on the 19th of Sun's Dawn, {{Lore Link|Molag Bal}} destroyed the town of {{Lore Link|Gilverdale}} in {{Lore Link|Grahtwood}} (eastern Valenwood). This prompted {{Lore Link|Sotha Sil}}, the living wizard-mystic god of the {{Lore Link|Dunmer}}, to negotiate an agreement with several Daedric Princes to forestall further such acts, though the details of this agreement are still unknown.{{ref|name=2920L|{{Cite book|2920, The Last Year of the First Era}}}}
===The Second Era===
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 occurrence 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 others 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}}}}
