"The Ice Blade of the Monarch is truly one of Tamriel's most prized artifacts. Legend has it that the Evil Archmage Almion Celmo enchanted the claymore of a great warrior with the seal of a Frost Monarch, a stronger form of the more common Frost Atronach. The warrior, Thurgnarr Assi, was to play a part in the assassination of a great king in a far off land, and become the new leader. The assassination failed and the Archmage was imprisoned. The Ice Blade freezes all who feel its blade. The Blade circulates from owner to owner, never settling in one place for long."

Yagrum Bagarn, Tamrielic Lore

After I learned of the fall of Mournhold the subsequent dissolution of the museum, Torasa conveyed in her return letter to me that though many relics went astray after the fall, the Ice Blade strangely vanished weeks before. That very night prior she apparently had a dream that an undead king with one eye came reaching through the void and beyond death to claim the blade in a desperate bid for power. Looking into the local lore, I of course first thought of King Olaf One-Eye of Dragonsreach. It is rather curious what Torasa explains, but interesting none the less.

In case Artifacts - Ice Blade of the Monarch is installed, the second part of the text (after the quote of Yagrum Bagarn) sounds:

"After I learned of the fall of Mournhold and the subsequent dissolution of the museum, Torasa conveyed in her return letter to me that though many relics went astray after the fall, the Ice Blade strangely vanished weeks before. That very night prior she apparently had a dream that the location known as Pilgrim's Trench, on the north coast, could be somewhere to start looking for this relic."
