The book of the dragonborn

Order of Talos
Year 360 of the Third Era
Twenty-First of the Reign of His Majesty Pelagius IV
Many people have heard the term "Dragonborn" - we are of course ruled by the "Dragonborn Emperors" - but the true meaning of the term is not commonly understood.
For those of us in the Order od Talos, this is a subject, near and dear to our hearts, and in this book I will attempt to illuminate the history and significance of those known as Dragonborn down through the ages.
Most scholars agree that the term was first used in connection with the covenant of Akatosh, when the blessed St. Alessia was given the Amulet of Kings and the Dragonfires in the Temple of the One were first lit(???).
"Akatosh, looking with pity upon the plight of men, drew precious blood from his own heart, and blessed St. Alessia with (t)his blood of Dragons, and made a Covenant that so long as Alessia's generations were true to the dragon blood, Akatosh would endavor to seal tight the Gates of Oblivion, and to deny the armies of daedra and undead to their enemies, the Daedra-loving Ayleids." Those blessed by Akatosh with "the dragon blood" became known more simply as Dragonborn.
The connextion with the rulers of the Empire was this there from the beginning - only those of the dragon blood were able to wear the Amulet of Kings and light the Dragonfires. All the legitimate rulers of the Empire have been Dragonborn - the Emperors and Empresses of the first Cyrodilic Empire founded by Alessia; Reman Cyrodiil and his heirs; and of course Tiber Septim and his heirs, down to our current Emperor,his Majesty Pelagius Septim IV.
Because of this connection with the Emperors, however, the Dragonborn has been obscured and largely forgotten by all but scholars and those of us dedicated to the service of the blessed Talos. Who Was Tiber Septim. Very few realize that being Dragonborn is not a simple matter of heredity - being the blessing of Akatosh himself, it is beyond our understanding exactly how and why it is bestowed. Those who become Emperor and light the Dragonfires are surely Dragonborn - the proof is in the wearing of the Amulet and the lighting of the Fires.
But were they Dragonborn and thus able to do these things - or was the doing the sign of the blessing of Akatosh descending upon them ? All that we can say is that it is both, and neither - a divine mystery.
The line of Septims have all been Dragonborn, of course, wich is one reason the simplistic notion of it being hereditary has become so commonplace. But we know for certain that the early Cyrodilic rulers were not all related. There is also no

Je ne suis pas sûre de ce que j'ai recopié, entre les la police et la qualité de la vidéo…
C'est de la belle propagande impériale…
En tout cas, le fait que les gardes impériaux essaient de te tuer durant l'attaque du dragon, et qu'ils savent que tu es un stormbidule alors que tu portes une armure de légionnaire, c'est assez pitoyable…
Sinon ça a l'air plutôt bien, je n'ai pas tout compris les dialogues hélas…
Ah par contre ceux qui ont pesté contre le tutoriel trop long d'Oblivion ne vont pas aimer celui de Skyrim pour la même raison…
Je trouve vraiment idiot de se gâcher le plaisir de découvrir ça quand on aura le jeu et qu'on pourra continuer l'aventure.
On est assez grand pour décider par nous-même…
