Skyrim - The Two Unexplained Dragons - Elder Scrolls Lore


In our latest Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim video we take you through two unexplained dragons.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is an open world action role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. It is the fifth main installment in The Elder Scrolls series, following The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 11, 2011.

The game's main story revolves around the player character and their quest to defeat Alduin the World-Eater, a dragon who is prophesied to destroy the world. The videogame is set two hundred years after the events of Oblivion, and takes place in the fictional province of Skyrim. Over the course of the game, the player completes quests and develops the character by improving skills. The game continues the open world tradition of its predecessors by allowing the player to travel anywhere in the game world at any time, and to ignore or postpone the main storyline indefinitely.

  • The Paranoid Blues Man

    Interesting that while Paarthurnax lives at the highest point of the world, Vulthuryol lives at the deepest.

  • The Fetch Prince

    Me: "Spoilers for Skyrim? Dude, the games been out for 6 years." Also me: WHAT I HAD NO IDEA

  • New Recruit

    It's clear how Vulthuryol got stuck in Blackreach:He used to be an adventurer like you, but then he took a Dwemer to the wing...

  • RedKoolaid Gaming

    What about the Water Dragons? There’s literally no evidence about them. They also appear to be twins, potentially created by Akatosh at the same time

  • BrotherBrothersGaming

    I believe the Blackreach dragon is a reference to Smaug in The Hobbit, he breathes fire and has bronze scales. The Dwemer are called Dwarves, and Smaug lives in the mountain of the Dwarves.

  • MosquitoHunter

    Maybe the skeletal dragon is the physical remains of durnehviir, still tenuously connected through necromancy, despite his soul being trapped in the soul cairn.

  • Lucille Francois

    Forgotten Vale ice breaking flashbacks

  • Maximus Wrather

    You just gave me a great mental picture a dragon tiptoeing over dwemer traps😂

  • David Thomas

    What if the Blackreach dragon was used to stoke their forges? That might be why the Etherium forge had to be there specifically. Perhaps the forging process of etherium requires dragon's fire?

  • Hurricane

    It's simple. Vulthuryol fell into the cave or perhaps stolen/smuggled when he was still a dragon egg. Dwemer kept the egg for study and ended up keeping him as a guard or infact as an "overlord" for the falmer.

  • FGS 9808

    The blackreach dragon almost killed me, but then a blackreach giant came and fought it out of no where. After the giant killed the dragon, I made it chase me up the stairs, where I shouted him off to his death.

  • Will Horton

    Could you talk about Wisp Mothers? Theyre really rare

  • ChromaticWolf 1

    more importantly, how does a giant get down there?

  • Grug Moment

    You can buy a plastic kit of the skeleton dragon, it's pretty neat.

  • Holden Cross

    Its 2019 and I'm just now watching this


    Well aren't the dragon shouts just a dragons way of arguing? And isn't that orb above the debate hall? What if he just freely lived among the dwemer cause he found them to be the best to "debate" with and then he's just been living there since they disappeared until we came along and activated the orb that summoned him for a "debate".

  • LJSupe

    Skyrims lore fascinates me just like Star Wars

  • SeaJay Oceans

    Vulthuryol is not trapped at all. This is His city. These were His people. It is his magic that powers the great glowing Orb. He Protects the underground city, and You will only encounter him if you attack the Orb.Since dragons ruled over the people in the past, and even had their own religion - his followers built Vulthuryol's city.His followers are long gone, extinct. But he remains, sleeping. Perhaps dreaming of when his city was alive and busy.Vulthuryol probably played an important role in carving out the underground to help build the city - so he was already there.But, with no followers, and nothing to do, he has settled down for a good long nap, as dragons are known to do.Maybe someday, someone can build an nice A.I. Quest - to restore Vulthuryol's people, and make the city happy and alive again.

  • Micheal O'Donnell

    I think that there was a dwarven dragonborn that ruled over blackreach. The dwemer used the dragon to rule the city and keep its inhabitants in line. When the dovah needed the dragon all they had to do was shout at the sphere and the dragon would come to the dragonborns call. This can be proven by the fact that only the urelenting force shout can summon the dragon. When u use it on the sphere the dragon must belive that its old master had summoned him. The dragonborn( lets just call them bob) could have used the dragon to force the falmer to obey him. Bob would say that if the falmer disobeyed him and tryied to riot, he would summon the dragon and destroy them all. That is why the dragon will attack the falmer instantly. Bob must be the one who found the black book that the player finds in nychaldark the dwemer ruin. Upon meeting hermaus mora he was given the bend will shout that made the dragon his own. Bob must have repeatedly traveled to solstien to gain the forbidden knowlege of the black books. He probably is the owner of the dwemer helm that you find next to the dwarven black bow of fate. If i remmber there is a blimb that you can find in solstien. If there is no other story behind it i bet it was his mode of transport to get to solstein but in the end the blimb crashed killing him abd ending his rein. I hope you enjoyed my theory and i hope that you can expand on it in a video and figure out any holes in this theory.Yours Truly,Micheal

  • Joeri Van Aalzum

    The place where i find the most dragons is the college of winterhold, wizarding school getting attacked by dragons? tri wizard tournament Harry's first test flashback

  • Quintaner

    The real reason for the dragon in Blackreach: well it’s got everything else, so why the hell not

  • miskov1995

    3:12 - ".. this can't be the work of a stand ard necromancer .."JOJO INTENSIFIES

  • HyperNutFist

    Fun fact, the text on the eye of Magnus are in the same alphabet as the text on the elder scrolls.

  • Matthew Chirino

    If fights between dragons are actually verbal debates, do they often argue about fire and ice magic?

  • jefthereaper

    Sniped the blackreach sun from afar.By the time I got there, he was already getting the final blows from the guys guarding the ruins (literally only 2 guys, and they killed him without either of them dying)

  • Dominick Follano

    I got it! A Dwemer scholar found his egg, brought it to black reach, and hatched it!

  • P_Duyd

    i ran past that skeletonI AINT GOT TIME TO DEAL WITH A SPOOPY DRAGON!

  • Tecrev

    I'd say that one is a hikikomori and decided to strike a deal with the Dwarves to settle peacefully down there to sleep. There wasn't any indication that you should hit the giant structure and cause that much noise for no reason. Who wouldn't come out raging when someone walked up to their house and started causing a scene?

  • Connor Tyler

    The Blackreach dragon is an Easter Egg; he's a reference to J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, specifically the dragon Smaug. He's an ancient dragon, ruling over a ruined city of dwarves located under a mountain. His name is also supposed to be a reference, but I can't quite recall the symbolism. One of the developers confirmed it ages ago.

  • Sean Wisniewski

    I would think that as the dragon war was going on some of the dragons would realize that their going to loose and that the dragon in black reach sought asylum with the dwemer and was tricked into guarding it by the dwemer

  • Malefactory 0

    Considering Thu'um is a lesser form of tonal architecture, I've always been under the impression that by performing the action on the sphere, you might be summoning the dragon from another time or plane.

  • babybobo1231

    Is the skeletal dragon a dragon Lich?

  • Clash Playa

    I think the dwemer dragon’s soul is trapped in the orb and when we shout at it we release it. Think about it, when we kill a dragon we absorb its soul, perhaps the dwemer were trying to do the same. Why? I don’t know, but it isn’t very far from where they kept the elder scroll (dragon)

  • Claudio Moita

    Maybe the Blackreach's dragon took a job offer by the Dwemer who were looking for someone with experience in slave management.

  • Westley Lewis

    I swear I'd keep replaying the dragonborn quest line just to keep watching that kynesgrove dragon grow it' flesh, so cool!

  • AwesomeBlueDie

    I had zero clue about the blackreach dragon

  • th3gr8makar0sc 666

    Vulthuryol was likely in a similar situation to Durnuhviir he wanted the dwemer secrets of technology and got trapped

  • Asher Bryant

    3:41 cue sans theme meme

  • Bjørn Almlöf

    Heyyy vSauce, Michael here

  • Sun Jara

    2:45 That makes the most sense to me.Maybe that dragon got to Blackreach as a baby/younger dragon.

  • AliveChannel191

    Dragon #1 could possibly be a very powerful conjuration from shalidor which still around long after the conjours death. Also $20 says fudgemupppet won't pin this comment

  • Kacper Tomasik

    Skyrim spoilers in 2k19?That's leet

  • Michael Grinnan Jr

    I fus ro dah'd a falmer in black reach ultimately freeing vuutheryal. When long story short it scared the Dovashit out of me

  • rosewhip889

    Vulthuryol probably hatched down there.

  • marshrover V

    Maybe Vultheryol was sent to Blackreach by Alduin, to act as his representative among the dwemer.

  • Shell Cracker

    My guess is they are just little Easter eggs to add something extra to the game. They have no backstory

  • JackDesert

    SKELETAL DRAGON: What if that's the body of Durneviir and what you fight is the soul in the Soul Cairn? I mean he can't die if he's already dead and the soul bound by the Ideal Masters to the very land. His body does have that Etherial quality of the souls around.VULTHURYOL: It could be that he got in through a cave that since collapsed, or a cave you can't find yourself and he stuck around snacking on the local Falmer like bite-sized pizza bagels.

  • AlleeCat2

    My theory on Vulthuryol? The orb is a "tonal architecture" mind control device. When you hit it with Unrelenting Force, it resonates at the right frequency to summon him.

  • Your Friendly Neighbour Hood Lean Dealer

    The dragon in black reach does fly soooo, what y'all talking about???

  • The Laughing Man

    I always just assumed that the bone dragon was one of Shalidor's creations.

  • ThRiVe

    Vulthuryol could be there after the great collapse blocked him in. Alftand/Blackreach is fairly close to winterhold.

  • MyNameIsBucket

    Never mind the dragon... how the hell did the giant get into Blackreach? Giants don't live for thousands of years so he had to get down there relatively recently.

  • AlicornofDarkness

    Lol atherium = ancient dragon poop

  • Courtney Michelle

    My sneak was so high I walked past the boney dragon and his boys

  • Mr. 100% Cool guy

    Actually a glitch happed were the the dragon i was fighting fell and died but still alive even when it was a skeleton and i tamed it with the bend will shout

  • Sean Murphy

    Skeleton dragon probably a construct to guard the staff. Probably the order

  • EarthWormBarry

    What about the two dragon brothers in the forgotten vale?

  • amber burnley

    Blackreach is just a weird placeGiants okay sureDragon? Okay not really but I'll take itMen serving the falmer ???The falmer proceeding to kill all of their human servants as I slaughter everyone 👉👉

  • The Happy Cajun

    Well you find the Dragon priest there must have been his master

  • Amazed Alloy

    At a guess, the skeleton dragon was killed by an ancient dragonborn, it's remains could have been taken their by dragon priests and it was then resurrected by an archmage who was incredibly strong, probably capable of doing things we can't.

  • Loganoni Fagatroni

    What about the two iccccy boys in forgotten vale

  • Michael Winegardner

    The blackreach dragon was imprisoned in the orb

  • Legendairy

    the game has been out for nearly 10 years, you dont need to give a spoiler warning lmao

  • Joseph Harston

    Vulthuryol could have been trapped in the orb that serves as the light and used his power to power that light.

  • Not Todd Howard

    I could see the Dwarves capturing and studying the Blackreach dragon. They wanted to study the metaphysics of the gods right? If you have a piece of Akatosh flying around burning your mine might as well capture and study it.

  • Sirius Now

    Could the skeletal dragon be Durnehviir, or at least his physical body? That would certainly explain where its soul went, and why Alduin didn't need to raise him.

  • Salvador Garcia

    Both are Easter eggs.The bone dragon is a token to world of Warcraft "wrath of the lich king" nexus 2nd to last boss.-dragon in black reach is token to smog from lord of the rings.

  • Šefik Harbaš

    what about miraks 2 blue dragon boyisthe deformed face ones
