Emperor Pelagius Septim III died on the 2nd of Sun's Dawn, 3E 153 in the Temple of Kynareth on the Isle of Betony. This Temple was destroyed promptly after the Emperor's death. Not long after, residents of the Shivering Isles came to Tamriel, stole the stones of the ruined Temple, brought them to the Isles, and rebuilt the Temple in exact detail. This structure became known as the Howling Halls, as it was said that one could still hear Pelagius' screams.
During the second-last Greymarch, a mortal woman named Ciirta came to Sheogorath's throne room for aid, only to find it empty. Deciding that Sheogorath was a false god, Ciirta made it her goal to slay the Madgod. Along with a group of supporters, she attempted to conquer the Shivering Isles and slay Sheogorath by leading a revolution of sorts during the Greymarch. She was the only survivor of the assault. Ciirta then founded the Apostles of Light and plotted to dethrone Sheogorath. Ciirta operated out of the Howling Halls, fooling her Apostles with visions of light to convince them to support her, until she was betrayed in 3E 433 by a splinter group of her Apostles and slain by Sheogorath's Champion. The pelvis bone of Pelagius was also recovered from the ruins.
- A Shivering Isles loading screen says that the Temple of Kynareth was originally located in Cyrodiil.
