Who Konahrik Was - Skyrim Theory


Arise, "Warlord".. Here, I discuss a few Skyrim Theories that could uncover Who Konahrik Was. Eight dragon priest masks, in their corresponding locations, unlock the Konahrik mask. Much of this deals with Skyrim lore, as well as some Skyrim secrets. I do other Skyrim top 5 stuff, often leading to secret quests and enemies. Perhaps, the most powerful enemy?

Since I'm on PC, I love the Skyrim new mods. There are quest mods and follower mods that are outstanding. They make coming up with your own fan theory, or happening on disturbing locations more fun. There's no shortage of sad stories and deaths to find, pocketed in secret locations, but they make it a little sweeter.

    Who knows? Maybe I'm dragonborn and don't know yet

  • Joel Raynor

    well Bothesda did confirm who he was.Konahrik was the one who stole your sweet roll

  • Brian Sanders

    My theory doesn't account for the Dragon Priests encountered in Elder Scrolls Online, but I have a theory that each of the Dragon Priests were the original Jarls of the holds of Skyrim, and Konahrik was reserved for the High King.

  • Caaros, The King of Chaos

    I personally think that Konahrik was the chief dragon priest, but he grew to despise the harsh treatment of the mortals by the dragon priests and dragons and began secretly spreading negativity against the dragons, planting the seeds for the Dragon War. Alduin figures this out, and orders the other dragon priests to kill him when they all gather at Bromjunaar (Labyrinthian). The other dragon priests except Krosis (Which means sorrow) are happy to do this, hence his name. He still agrees to do so of course.Problem is, when the dragon priests spring their trap, Konahrik proves far too powerful for them to defeat, fighting them to a complete standstill. Alduin has to get involved, but realizes that Konahrik may make a better asset than a corpse. He then orders the other dragon priests to curse Konahrik, binding his soul to his own mask and killing his corporeal body. The whole 'need-all-the-masks-to-get-Konahrik's' thing is basically a safeguard to make sure no one with the magical know-how could resurrect him, and that Alduin could have access to Konahrik whenever he pleases.

    Miraak chose Kthulu over Smaug.

  • Aron Johansson

    i think konarikh is braith

  • Justin Farrar

    It all makes sense now...Konahrik is Snoke!!!

  • Untamed Fruitsnack

    Depends. We talkin' belgian or eggo?

  • Dylan Flynn

    the masks aren't so much named after the owner as much as the owners are named after the masks

  • Supersmash gamer

    Konahrik is thelegend27

  • Haku infinite

    a major potential hole with all of these theories, save the first one, is that in present day skyrim, kohnarik the mask is NOT there anymore. the statue is all busted up and the mask gone. where it went or when it was taken is unknown. all we know is, in the past it was there and it could only be revealed by using all the other masks.here's the issue. we have no idea when it is kohnarik is there. we don't know what time period the wooden mask brings you back to. obviously it was a time when labyrinthian was still in top form, as the area is clearly in pristine condition. so i'm guessing at that time, skyrim is still being ruled by the dragons, meaning that nobody has kohnarik, since the mask is still there, and of course since you take it, there never was or will be a kohnarik.also you got something else wrong, we don't know where the wooden mask was located originally, it was brought to labyrinthian by a different person where you find their corpse and a letter describing why they died.so i'm going first explanation.

  • Daeken Sullivan

    Maybe the other priests didnt want Miraak to reclaim Konariik so they required that he kill all other dragon priests brfore he was able to reclaim it.

  • Ismai Sirin

    why is skyrim lore so interesting

  • Alex, That One Shitposter

    Obviously he likes pancakes more. They're way more fluffy.

  • The_Pegasus_Box

    I believe Konahrik was the Arch Priest of the Dragon Priests, the leader of their religion. He held the position until death, but because of his power gained over years of favor from the dragons, he was not buried at death. Instead, he was cremated and his ashes scattered across Skyrim, resulting in unique abnormalities, such as Unmelting Snow. His mask, blessed by Alduin himself, was sealed with the power of the greatest members of their order, so unless a time where it was necessary for all Dragon Priests to come together, it would never be found.Or, when some idiot with a thumpy stick decided to see what the wooden mask did,

  • Darth Molalikith

    It is posible that Lord Harkon used to be a Dragon Priest but had gone Rogue and abandoned the Dragons? He has a Dragon Priest dagger in his castle.

  • Not the real Mason

    The Theory that you are the Kohanarik would also tie in with the "Letter from a friend" mystery. That Hermeous Morus is sending you the letters because he wants you to succeed and then later kill Mirak.

  • Emiel Regis Rohellec Terzieff Godefroy

    Ulfric Stormcloak is not dragonborn

  • Foster's stubby ASMR

    I like the shalidor theory

  • Michael Lee

    Oh! I actually made a build that answers this question! The Dragonborn is Kohnarik of Atmora, born during the Merethic Era and was one of the first dragonborns. When the Dragons first came to Tamriel and Atmora, they saw the the potential of Kohnarik and asked him for his loyalty for great power in return. Kohnahrik was fascinated by their offer, so he agreed. He became one of the first Dragon Priests of Atmora. Kohnahrik was reassigned to Skyrim and also became the leader of the other eight priests that went with him. However, war broke out in Skyrim and many Nords began to rebel against the dragons. The rebels were about to launch a massive attack on the Labyrithian, so Kohnarik used a scorched-earth tactic and had his men destroy most of the city while he fled to High Rock. However, he did not inform the other priests or the dragons about his plan, and when Kohnarik returned to Skyrim, the other priests were waiting.The eight priests were furious that Kohnarik was responsible for the destruction of the Labyrithian and so they stripped away his power, stripped him of his name, and took away and locked up his mask, and erased all understanding of shouts or spells. Just as the Greybeards can bestow the knowledge of shouts to the Dragonborn, the priests can also take it away. Kohnarik was supposed to be killed by Alduin himself, but he was busy fighting a war. The execution would have to be delayed. Kohnarik then escaped the dragon priests, and fled again, this time to Cyrodill. He was stopped in Bruma by a group of Nord rebels. Among them was Felldir, the Old, who had an Elder Scroll. He had a theory that the Scroll could be used to banish people from time itself, but he never got the chance to test it. But now, he had captured the great dragon priest, Kohnarik, and he will pay for his crimes. Felldir used the scroll on Kohnarik to try to banish him. It failed, and Kohnarik ended up in the 4th era. It took time for him to adapt to the new time period, but eventually, after a few years, he became a well-respected blacksmith. But he was curious. Kohnahrik wanted to know more about what happened to the dragon cult and see what remained. He then traveled back to Skyrim where he walked into a stormcloak ambush, and you know what happened. When he saw Alduin for the first time in years, he was at first overwhelmed with joy. But then the started attacking. Alduin was going to finish what he started. Kohnarik felt betrayed. Alduin not only refused to help him, but he was going to destroy the world, when he was only supposed to rule it. Kohnahrik was going to enact revenge. He would kill the other eight priests, kill every dragon in sight (except Parthunax; he helped Kohnarik), and reclaim his power.

  • Jayden B

    I'm pretty sure he likes pancakes. lol ^-^

  • Jacob Gottschalk

    Here's my theory: The gods created the mask as asecret reward to the dragonborn for defeating the dragons most loyal servants just as they created the dragonborn to defeat the dragons. As well they named the mask warlord because the dragonborn is in sense a warlord for waging war against the dragons and leading others against them

  • Redstone Casey

    I like waffles because they're crispier. Especially chocolate chip ones.

  • aaron cabral

    Here's my theory: among all the priest konahrik was the most powerful so powerful that rivald even Alduin thus he answered to alduin only and was the leader dragon cult. Near the end of the Dragon war, with Alduin gone Konahrik knew the defeat was near but he could not let his mask the sorce of his almighty power fall into the hands of the enemy. Konahrik tore a fabric in time creating something like a pocket dimension and hid his mask there where no one could reach it then gave up his physical form to create the wooden mask in hopes that another one of worthiness would caim the mask and its awsome power thus carying on Konahrik's legacy

  • Spooder Pig

    hang on a moment, how about the corpse left behind at the shrine? i mean yeah reading the letter left behind on the corpse pointed out that he is weak, stated that he cant go to the shrine alone and had to have protection, but also he said he was hiding the dragon priest masks, what if he was infact Konahrik and he was hiding his mask, waiting for the dragonborn in the prophecy (us) to claim his mask

  • Dirty Mashups Done Dirt Cheap

    Isn't it obvious? Jonah risk is Nazeem, the could district he was talking about wasn't the castle, 'twas the sky he was referring to, it all makes sense

  • Fatty McNugget

    Graenolf your content never lets me down

  • TheDerpFactor

    Khonariik was a dragon priest that grew in power until his power was greater than all of the other priests. The priests and the Dovah were fearful of this immense power so they banished the priest himself to Oblivion. But what if Khonariik's mask wasnt supposed to be discovered? What if it isnt a reward? What if it isnt there so that something could get in? What if it is there so that Khonariik cant get out and the only way to unlock it is if all of the dragon priests agreed to release it by putting their masks on the shrine? Maybe Khonariik was just to powerful, too dangerous, too risky for the dragon priests to set free? The dovah and their priests imprisoned Khonariik in the Labyrinthian in another realm with one way in: the wooden mask. They banned anyone from ever accessing its power ever again. This idea would act as a safeguard for the dragon priests, because, after all, who could kill all of the dragon priests and Alduin?

  • Lucky LICK

    I used to be a dragon priest like you then I took an arrow to the knee.

  • skyquester

    i think Konahrik is a reward created during the dragon war for their most loyal dragon priest but since alduin was defeated a dragon cult hid it making sure that it would be acquired only in the presence of the other dragon priests or at least their masks

  • Lord Turtwig667

    why do want to know if he tucks himself in or not, freakin werido

  • Diablo Pale

    My assumption was that Konahriik is Miraak, but after his betrayal, his original mask was stripped from him (after all, his outfit is tentacle-styled and he was a dragon priest long before he started worshiping Mora) and hidden by the other priests on the mainland in Labrynthian, to further prevent his return to power. That's why the effect is called "Konahriik's Privilege", because it was the mask attributed to the ruler of the Dragon Cult and, with an ego like Miraak's, he would have wanted to claim his old mask upon return.

  • Kevin Natanael

    Konahrik can't be a dragonborn, because at that time miraak was a dragonborn

  • ltshep

    I'll personally like the idea that Kohnariik uses to be a Dragonborn and has a connection to the Last Dragonborn. Mostly because it fits with my little roleplay thing that I always use. The backstory for my character is that he's in skyrim searching for the dragon priest masks he heard stories about as a child.

  • atticusphone

    you missed one yuge idea, Konahrik is you ......but because you are both incarnations of Shor (Shezarrine). Fits the reason for power (even over miraak), fits how he could dominate other mortals blessed by dragons, why he would have dragon like powers including shouts and was better at it, why he was most favored by dragons, and maybe - most importantly- why you never see him, shor, talos, or ANY other shezarrine in game.And since I am the first (that i know of) to come up with this, I'd suggest he loves crepes filled with honey or jam (that's the more nordic thing to eat) instead of boring ass pancakes and waffles.

  • Thomas Bolinger

    Am I the only one who isn't hearing any audio on this video?

  • Zosphus

    the reincarnation of Shor, the impersonation of the Daedra, Sithis, Vahlok, Konahrik, what is the Dragonborn not in Skyrim?

  • Tailin Sero

    Maybe the "Warlord" is the "guardian in the book Guardian and the Traitor. We know Miraak is the Traitor and that he was defeated by an even greater Dragon Priest. After their battle, the Guardian is made the ruler of Solstheim. Maybe he left his mask behind so that if he failed to defeat Miraak, his mask would not be lost as well.

  • /TableTop \

    I have a friend called conor Reid is that name close to his?

  • ThunderWolf

    What about the wooden mask it basically has the power of an elder scroll

  • This Guy I

    Konahrik apparently does translate to warlord. So most likely #1.You are Konahrik.

  • Dialask Isel

    I used to be a Dragon Priest like you, but then I took an Eggo to the knee...

  • The Darkstalker

    Imagine if Konahrik was Miraak's brother and was the second dragonborn Being NEXT to the dragons because of his power and because he was in Skyrim dealing with other rebellions when his brother rebelled against the dragons, he sent Vahlok in his place, giving him some of his power in order to stop him. Where he went is unknownCould have hidden his mask away after the dragon war and went in search of power (gotten trapped in oblivion) or perhaps used his awesome powers to transform to that lying cat man or even transformed himself into a dragon. Or perhaps he wasn't a peraon at all and is just a mask and all of what I said was bullshitFilthy ningens...

  • Awad Shakoor

    What if Graenolf is actually Kohnarihk. DUN DUN DUUUUUUN

  • MasterGagnon

    i like the last theory.. that shalidor one was awesome! kuudos :)

  • magicrainbow aids

    Shalidors's didn't leave the wooden mask out in the open it was on a dead Breton ( shalidor is Nord ) where the wooden mask actually came from is unknown. Also the secret to long life isn't time travel you still live your normal life span it would only give the illusion of a long life which shalidor wouldn't need since it is known powerful wizards in tes universe can prolong their life. As for the warden all dragon priests are liches . Liches unlike normal undead like zombies or draugr liches retain there soul . They go through lengthy rituals to become liches for this reason. Also you missed the most obvious possibility that konahrik was none of the aforementioned theories and was an entirely separate individual that died along time ago never became a lich and as such his mask was laid to rest till someone else could claim it.

  • Limitless Beast

    What if the dragon born was making out with someone and shouts while kissing them....lol, blow their body to bits! XD

  • Nebby The Cosmog

    I don't know if anybody will see this but I think that Konahriik or whatever is a temporary dragon priest. So priests like Miraak have been Konahriik but other priests will have to prove themselves to become Konahriik, then they will be a stronger priest and have a different mask, shouts and the like. So my theory is that a dragon priest has been or will be Konahriik at some point. So it could be like:Volsung -> Konahriik -> Volsung (Stronger).This would also mean that there would only be one Konahriik at a time, so if two priests are worthy they may have to fight over Konahriik, or form together to make Konahriik (if that is possible). I hope that this all made sense.

  • Kindlespit

    the third and fourth theory hold no ground. Vahlok didn't have to be a dragonborn to defeat Miraak, a dragonborn isn't the most powerful mortal being that can exist. There's zero proof he was a dragonborn other than this piece of flawed logic. Furthermore, if for some god forsaken reason he was, I doubt the dragons would hold respect for a dragonborn; Miraak was the only one they had ever encountered and he slayed them by the dozens. Miraak was a loyal dragon priest once, but he eventually turned on the dragons. If the dragons knew Vahlok was a dragonborn, they would just kill him so something like that wouldn't happen again. You're the dragonborn in Skyrim and the dragons want to straight up murder you as well.Shalidor didn't live during the existence of the dragon cult. He didn't build Labyrinthian as well, Labyrinthian was a city known as Bromjunaar that served as the capitol of the ancient Dragon cult in skyrim. Many years after the defeat of the dragon cult in the First era, Shalidor came along and built his maze, which became the eventual namesake for the entire ruin, despite there being no relation. All of this is in the book "a minor maze" that you can find in Skyrim. While it may be a plausible idea that he at some point used Konahriik as the legendary artifact from Akatosh himself (Akatosh is the father of all dragons, and the mask has life-prolonging capabilities so it adds up), but he wasn't the original owner, he wasn't a dragon priest, and he wasn't Konahriik.Also, considering a statement in the second theory: the dragon priest masks most likely aren't named after their owners, but instead the owners are named after their masks. The names of the masks actually mean something in the dragon language, and some would be very strange words to call your kids, including but not limited to; Sorrow, Vengeance and Horror. Not to mention Vahlok means "guardian" in the dragon tongue, a name oddly fitting to his eventual purpose in life. The names of the dragon priests are most likely given to them as part of their ascension to priesthood, and the masks that come with the job simply have the same name.

  • Dr3adL0rdhg

    I think the mask was actually created for the purpose of showing status; there would be an incredibly high rank (which was never reached) called “Warlord” and the mask would be given to them upon reaching it, the other masks must be placed because there was originally some kind of ritual involving the other priests to anoint the Kohnariik, warlord, and take the mask. This would also explain the fact that it only exists in the past; it was taken by a thief in the future as it had never been taken.

  • sonicj Polygon

    no it was probably cos vahlok was konahrik and he had a worse mask and for beating miirak he got rewarded for that and when the dragon war or whatever it was called he sealed it away so that when he was awakened it wouldnt have been stolen or his tomb raided and he entruepsted the other preists with guarding it

  • / ConnorR444 \

    I think the shrine was created by the dragon priests in case as a last resort where they would put there masks in the shrine and combine there powers to create a new mask. They could resurrect a powerful person of that time and the mask could corrupt him and give him amazing power as the dragon followed the orders of the dragons and this mask would make the wearer follow these same ordersI know you may say this is insane and there is no evidence but do you believe that the shrine could have been made by someone that had never worn one of these dragon masks and create such a powerful item. This shrine must have been made by someone that had knowledge of all the dragon masksYou may say why does the dragon born not get corrupted when he wears itI have 2 answers One he has the dragons blood he is part dragon so the mask wouldn't affect him as he himself is literally a dragonTwo the magic curse/enchantment was broken when the dragons were destroyed and didn't reactivate when they returned as there was no one to do it Overall I think this mask was created from the others in desperate times

  • August Van Buren

    My favorite part of Skyrim is learning about Dragon Priests. Thank you so much for uploading this vid!

  • SabLiminaL

    I've got a theory for you. Konahrik doesn't mean warlord at all. When you meet the dragon (who's name I forgot) in the soul Carin and defeat him he names you "konahrin" which translates to vanquisher. What if komahrik means vanquished in which case it'd make a lot of sense considerimg dragon priests are essentially dead. Who that is though I don't know. You'd have to find a dragon priest who died in some special way or mabey was known for having been vanquished but yet still live on

  • Daedrean_TV

    look. waffles are better, simply because they're pancakes, with pockets that they can hold you're chosen toppings in... btw, I sleep in a blanket cocoon, and yes. I'm single. - with love, Konahrik.
