The Reman Dynasty was founded by Reman Cyrodiil after he defeated the Akaviri invasion of Tamriel at the battle of Pale Pass in 1E 2703. Until that point, Tamriel had been divided into several small kingdoms, but once Reman had brought the armies of Colovia and the Nibenay Valley together to defeat the invasion, he was able to unite all Tamriel's human inhabitants in the face of possible aggression from the Aldmer.
Although the Battle of Pale Pass established Reman as the leading power in Tamriel, many parts of the continent refused to acknowledge his rule. Valenwood was not subdued until 1E 2714. In 1E 2811, Cyrodilic forces defeated the last organized army of Argonians at the Battle of Argonia, and the following year saw Argonia admitted to the Empire as a province under the name "Black Marsh". The rest of the province was conquered piecemeal, with the whole area passing under Imperial control in 1E 2837.
The last war of conquest began in around 1E 2840 when Reman II began an attempt to bring Morrowind, the only province outside Imperial control, into the empire. Progress was slow, and the three living gods of Morrowind's Tribunal, Vivec, Almalexia and Sotha Sil proved to be extremely capable leaders. By 1E 2920, both sides were approaching exhaustion and after the Empire captured the fortress of Ald Marak, a truce was agreed to bring an end to the war.
In the aftermath of the battle, both Reman III and his heir, Prince Juilek, were assassinated on the orders of Potentate Versidue-Shaie, bringing an end to the Reman Dynasty and instigating the period of the Second Empire known as the Akaviri Potentate. Reman I, II and III were entombed in a chamber deep within Sancre Tor, along with two other unknown emperors.[nb 1]

- ^ a b Tomb in Sancre Tor: "Here lies Reman III, last Emperor of the Cyrodiils, the scourge of the Dark Elves, who was cruelly slain by treachery, in the year 2920. He reigned forty-three years."
- ^ The only known emperors under this dynasty (other than Reman I, II and III) were Brazollus Dor and Kastav, which implies they are the two other emperors entombed with Reman. However the possibility of an unknown emperor after Reman II brings this into question.
- ^ The Remanada contains an allegorical story of Reman emerging from Sancre Tor as a child, but this should not be taken as literal truth.
- ^ The only mention of Brazollus is in 2920, The Last Year of the First Era, where Versidue-Shaie lists him between Reman I and Reman II. Given the gap between the death of Reman I and the accession of Reman II, it seems that there must have been at least one ruler between the two and it seems likely that Versidue-Shaie's listing is accurate.
- ^ Reman I died in 1E 2762 and it is reasonable to assume that his successor was crowned almost immediately afterwards.
- ^ It is unknown when Brazollus Dor died, but Kastav was Emperor by 1E 2801 according to Annals of the Dragonguard. Given that Reman II is stated to have been crowned by 1E 2806, Kastav was most likely Reman II's immediate predecessor, which means Brazollus Dor reigned before Kastav.
- ^ It is unknown when Kastav was crowned, but it is noted in Annals of the Dragonguard that he was Emperor at least as early as 1E 2801.
- ^ The exact year of Kastav's death and the ascension of his successor, Reman II, is not specified by Annals of the Dragonguard. Sky Haven Temple was under siege between 1E 2805 and 1E 2806, and no news of the outside world reached the members of the Dragonguard stationed there. Only after the siege was lifted did they become aware of Reman II's ascension.
- ^ The 16 year gap between the death of Reman II and the coronation of Reman III implies that another emperor reigned between them, but no information regarding this person exists. Should such an emperor exist, it would bring the total number of emperors in the dynasty to six, however this presents an inconsistency with the presence of only five tombs in Sancre Tor.
