Skyrim - Whose Gem is This? - The Full Story of Barenziah - Elder Scrolls Lore


In our latest Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim video we take you through full story of Barenziah and her stones.

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.

    Legit thought Barenziah was a male.

    Trinkets, odds and ends..that sort of thing.

  • Ryk Latortuga

    In the Old Nord, her name translates as "Bit of a Shagger"

  • Ian Quandt

    It's bothering me that there's 25 stones on the crown

  • crazyman137

    No no not the gems many hours wasted so many sleepless nights!

  • niko 2064

    I.Hate.those.stones.I know the effect you get if you actually do the quest is good but jesus it's a pain to find them actually.

  • The Nothing Nobody

    The Stones of Barenziah are like Tootsie Pops, how many can YOU find without modding?I've never made it without modding.

  • M3T4LH34D91

    And all that time you spend hunting them down... (Assuming you dont have access to mods) all you get is more gems than you can sell. Biggest let down ever. I guess it would be useful if you do it at the start of the game but lets be real here, its that one quest we've all put on the back burner

  • Pretzelbomb

    The story of Barenziah was one of my favorite parts of the Elder Scrolls 5. I was running through some random bandit fort and started reading the first book I clicked, the real barenziah, v1. I liked the story, and soon found a book marked barenziah v2. I started reading but realized the story was different, and then read the title closer, noticing the biography of barenziah, v2 and that it was written by an imperial scribe instead of anonymous. I thought this was awesome, as I showed just how detailed the world was, showing the same story told truthfully and censored. I had already started the gems quest and gotten them appraised, so I didn’t notice the name until I found a new one, which just blew my mind. This story really turned a collectible side quest into a deep and amazing thing to discover, especially if you figure it out yourself.

  • Kristos Turambar

    What if she didn't get the abortion and Tiber Septim still has a half dunmer son or daughter who is heir to the Ruby throne

  • amit gabay

    this girl just can't keep her legs closed

  • Thomas Sugg

    Iv been playing Skyrim for 6 years and iv only just completed this quest.

  • groovemedium

    Thanks for the lore, homie. I didn't even realize Barenziah was a lady. I definitely didn't know about the Karliah connection.

  • Serahpin

    The stones of Barenziah are extremely rare jewels that are also worthless... unless you happen to have all of them. Wut?

  • The Poison Bucket

    Read the daggerfall version of the book available on uesp, it's the best version.

  • Jay'Von Ro

    So your saying since she was a sluut...sluuty armor is lore friendly?

  • chris cogar

    I suggest reading the book "a game at dinner" it gives you a more in depth look at her and her son

  • Tarlo The Boar

    Didn't she have a Cough Intimate moment Cough with a Khajiit?

  • Graymatter

    I love you guys for these videos. Divines only knows how long it'll be till ES6 but you have kept skyrim so facinating that I hardly notice the time go by. Wether im sifting through lore watching you guys goof off in a play through or doing one myself from your builds you've kept this game alive for me.

  • Skulldetonator Gaming

    You are one of the best YouTube channels in the world I love your videos and keep up the good work

  • the13nthpartyboy

  • R3miz

    too bright for Morrowind

  • Alternate Infinite

    The one in Whiterun Crypt belonged to Balgruf's wife, who was layed to rest there.

  • The_Drop Bear

    The increased chance of finding gems is so high, you will find about 4 gems in every urn

  • RJWalker

    Everyone should read The Real Barenziah. And no, not for that reason but because it's actually a really nice story. The ending was quite effective: "Barenziah could only hope that he wouldn't take very long, whoever this unnamed Champion was. She was a Dark Elf, and she had all the time in the world. All the time. But no more love left to give, and no more hatred left to burn. She had nothing left, nothing but pain, and memories... and her children. She only wanted to raise her family, and provide them a good life, and be left to live out what remained of hers. She had no doubt it was going to be a long life yet. And during it she wanted peace, and quiet, and serenity, of her soul as well as of her heart. Peasant dreams. That was what she wanted. That was what the real Barenziah wanted. That was what the real Barenziah was. Peasant dreams.Pleasant dreams."'Peasant Dreams' is a recurring theme.

  • DaWolfCave and friends

    WHST?! YOU CAN WEAR IT?! F### it im finding these stones

  • Robyn

    Between this and the comments, I was inspired to read the whole story. And wow, it was intense. Barenziah is my new favourite person. I'd never read the books before because they're so long, but they're almost worth the three hours of sleep they cost me. (Ugh I work tomorrow... why did I do this??)

  • Defne Purut

    I stole this when I first came to Dragonsreach, suddenly received many many quests.

  • Mark Crnjal

    Remember folks, if you don't want to get cucked and robbed then don't hire the bard named Nightingale for your Hearthfire house in Falkreath.

  • DarkSilver

  • JustAGuy

    Holy shite how long was I waiting for this damn video to finally come out goodness gracious. Great vid btw.

  • johnaspaul

    You always give me a reason to go back to my save game and do quests I skipped.

  • Cars Simplified

    Seems like a relatively small reward for such an big undertaking. I never got around to finding them all in any of my playthroughs.

  • FredRated1967

    I hate that you can't store these damn things in a container until you find them all.

  • HowDo ILogin

    I don't care what people say, this quest had the best reward ever - the ability to skyrocket in level if done early on.

  • sheogorath the Prince of Madness

    What a tangled web we weave when at first we practice to deceive.

  • The Expert

    6:06 I don't even wanna know what he would've done with that
