Where do I find the Jarl of Whiterun?

Balgruuf the Greater is the Nord Jarl of Whiterun Hold, residing in his great hall, Dragonsreach. He is a major character in the main quest of Skyrim.

Where is the house the Jarl gives you in Skyrim?

Find your new house. The house is called “Breezehome”, and you can find it to the east of “Warmaiden’s” just inside the western gates of Whiterun.

Where is Lydia after the Battle of Whiterun?

She is likely to be your first housecarl, which she becomes after you are titled a thane of Whiterun upon completion of the Dragon Rising quest. If she is not following you, she resides in the main hall of Dragonsreach, although if you purchase Breezehome, she will move there.

What side is Jarl Balgruuf on?

He is a man who cares strongly about Nordic traditions and does not seem to like the Legion too much (calls them Milk Drinkers during the civil war quest line iirc).

Where does Jarl Balgruuf go after surrendering?

The Blue Palace
Jarl Balgruuf, Commander Caius, Hrongar, Proventus Avenicci and Irileth take up residence in The Blue Palace in Solitude.

What happens if you lose the battle of whiterun?

If you fail to defend the barricades, you will have to fall back and defend the drawbridge instead. Failing to defend the drawbridge has little consequences, as the quest is impossible to fail unless you die. There will be a percentage count of how many Stormcloak soldiers are left.

What happens if the Stormcloaks take whiterun?

Balgruuf will remain Jarl and the Whiterun Guard will remain as the city’s guards, but all other NPCs will act as if the city had been taken by the Stormcloaks. If Breezehome is owned before the siege, it may be lost afterwards.

Do you lose Lydia If you join the Stormcloaks?

No. You can have “Join the Stormcloaks” and “Join the Legion” both active at once, but once you join one you get an automatic quest failure for the other one.
