I was looking up some lore. and i came across a vampire description that stated that they are among the strongest undead and that they are slightly weaker than a lich.

So i looked up the page on vampire lords to see if they mentioned them being more or less powerful than a lich but there was no mention.

Does anybody know which is more powerful lore wise? I would be interested to know.

I'd say that a FULL blooded vampire would be stronger if not strong as a lich. But that is just a guess, however, I am a GOOD guesser!!!
If it bleeds, I can kill it.

I don't know about that. Vampires suffer weaknesses during daylight and require constant feeding. Not to mention weakness to fire and only an ageless immortality. Liches on the other hand, have no such light or fire weaknesses, and enjoy a near perfect immortality. Even should you defeat a lich, you only destroy the body as his soul returns to a phylactery. Couple that with the minimum requirement of being a master wizard and you have a very potent adversary.

I remember a certain Lich in Morrowind that was underneath Mournhold that was hidden in semi secret area that was rather difficult to kill.

I'd say it has to be Vampire Lord > Lich > regular vampire

Lichs may be powerful, but VLs are on another level entirely.

I say named lich == named vampire lord > unnamed lich > unnamed vampire > bandit

There are also different kinds of lich's some of the more powerfull so I think it needs to go by a case by case basis.
