Ayleids were a race of Mer who ruled over Cyrodiil during the First Era. They where also known as Wild Elves or Heartland High Elves.
Descendants from the Aldmer, the Aldmer left their homeland during the middle of the Merethic Era, and relocated to the Summerset Isles. Later, some groups left the isles and continues to go out and explore. They soon took controls of large area's of land.
The Ayleid's used slaves to build their empires. Instead of all the Ayleids under one leader, the city's where their own states.
During the first era, a slave known as Alessia receive divine inspiration from the gods. She lead her fellow slaves to rebel against their masters. With the help of the Nord's of the north, and radical Ayleid nobles, they eventually won the war.
After the war, Ayleids where seen less and less. Many Ayleids where chased down and hunted. No confirmed sightings have been confirmed since the third Era.
