Maven is probably the most competant, but not who I'd want.

I mean, she's got her own mercs in constant employ, she's got ties to both the TG and DB, people don't want to mess with her, and the ruler is under her thumb. This is all without any official powers.

If she wanted to bring down the Thalmor and not sell Skyrim out to them, she'd be the one you'd want ruling.


But that's the problem. She doesn't want to bring down the Thalmor, and she has no qualms about working with them as long as they don't disrupt her operations in Skyrim.
Kinda reminds me of Aria T'loak, now that I think about it.

Ulfric or Maven.
like em or hate em. they're very successful.

Maven has a right hold over the criminal underworld.
Ulfric started an extremely successful revolution and civil war.


Only succesful civil war if you side with those ignorant racists, otherwise it was a complete failure.


and the corrupt oppressive empire is only successful if you side with them. otherwise a rebellion of farmers and civilians (for the most part) beats a battle hardened legion.

and the civil war has been going on for ages. regardless if he wins or loses, he's still very competent to be able to lead such a rebellion, to deny that is ignorant and shows your gross bias.

I thought a large number of the Stormcloaks were just Imperial Legionnaires before splitting off. I might be wrong, though.

Most SC's are Imperial Veterans that left the glory of the Empire.
Note how most Stormcloaks are older than the legionnaires.

How is Elisif good at anything?! She holds no power and just does what Tullius tells her to.

Probably Maven, just for having the TG in her back pocket, and they have the DB, not someone you'd like to mess with.
