|description=A volume describing the noble Imperial family of House Tharn
}}
{{Lore Link|Tharn|House Tharn}} of {{Lore Link|Cheydinhal}} is one of the most distinguished noble families of northern {{Lore Link|Nibenay}}, where they have held extensive estates since early in the {{Lore Link|First Era}}. The family may, as they claim, be as old as the First Era itself: as house historians like to point out, there is a "{{Lore Link|Tharanus Ye Redde-Hand}}" mentioned in the {{Lore Link|Tamrilean Tractates}} of {{Year|1E 200}}. In those days before {{Lore Link|Alessian Slave Rebellion|Alessia's Slave Rebellion}}, this proto-Tharn was apparently a slave overseer employed by the {{Lore Link|Ayleid}} Elves of {{Lore Link|Fanacas}}, a mining hold in the hills north of modern-day Cheydinhal. Based upon the fact that the Ayleids were known to have kept business records in red ink, the Tharn historians posit that this "Redde-Hand" was probably literate and employed in some clerical capacity. To be thorough, I will mention Lady {{Lore Link|Euphemia Glaber}}'s theory that identified this Tharanus with the notorious "{{Lore Link|Tharhan the Mutilant}}" of the {{Lore Link|Gradual Massacre}} in {{Year|1E 227}}, but this was completely disproved by the text of the "{{Lore Link|Scroll of Precursor Saints}}" discovered the in the vaults below the {{Lore Link|White-Gold Tower}} by Chancellor {{Lore Link|Abnur Tharn}} in {{Year|2E 541}}.
 
House tradition holds that the Tharn family was active in St. {{Lore Link|Alessia}}'s slave uprising, with one {{Lore Link|Vilius Tharn}} serving {{Lore Link|Pelinal Whitestrake}} as "Blade-Serrator and Master of the Abbatoir." But the next Tharn who can definitely be identified in the historical record is {{Lore Link|Books_by_Author#Arch-Prelate Fervidius Tharn|Fervidius Tharn}} of the {{Lore Link|Alessian Order|ONlink=ON:Alessian Order (faction)}}, who was Arch-Prelate of the {{Lore Link|Maruhkati Selective}} from {{Year|1E 1188}} until his death (exact date indeterminate). Fervidius is best-remembered today as the author of the "{{Lore Link|Sermons Denouncing the Seventeen Leniencies}}."
Which brings us to the members of the Tharn family of our own, current day. First and foremost, of course, is the head of the house and longtime Chancellor of the {{Lore Link|Elder Council}}, Abnur Tharn. Through times of trouble and the change of emperors, the Chancellor has always been there to provide the continuity and consistency our Imperial civilization needs.
 
Second only out of respect for her elder is Her Majesty {{Lore Link|Clivia Tharn}}, Empress- Regent of {{Lore Link|Cyrodiil}}, and daughter of Abnur Tharn by his seventh wife, {{Lore Link|Pulasia}}. Empress Clivia, it need hardly be said, is the widow of two emperors, having been the consort of both {{Lore Link|Leovic}} and {{Lore Link|Varen Aquilarios|Varen}}.
 
Scarcely less powerful is the Chancellor's younger half-sister, {{Lore Link|Euraxia Tharn}}, who has been Queen of {{Lore Link|Rimmen}} since the {{Lore Link|Frostfall Coup}} in {{Year|2E 576}}. And what would social events in the {{Lore Link|Imperial City}} be like without the presence of her son, the droll and charming {{Lore Link|Javad Tharn}}?
