Question about the Empire

#1JayAitchPosted 5/4/2013 3:27:29 PM
Why do Imperials control the Empire? Nords have dragon shouts, Redguards are the best fighters, and Bretons are great mages. Is there something special about Imperials that make them more apt to sit on the throne? I just would think some other, better, race would have snatched it by now.

Not all Emperors/Empresses were Imperials. Hell Tiber was a Nord and there were also two Dunmer rulers I think. There's also Alessia.

Imperials are referred to as imperials because they're from Cyrodiil, which is the capitol of the empire. If the capitol was in Skyrim, nords may have wound up being called imperials, and the people of Cyrodiil may have been called something else. At least, that's how it seems to me.
