    So a while ago I found this door in Dragonsreach that is locked and you need a certain key to get in there. So I just left it and continued my exploring, but ever since I can't stop thinking about this door!!!

    Where can I find the key that unlocks this door?!?!

    Please no spoilers, even if there is only 1 gold piece inside that room.

    Hi,

    I noticed that door as well.

    I do know know where to find the key. However, since Skyrim is so open ended (you can pretty much kill/steal/go where ever you want) I would assume, since this requires a key it is probably quest related.

    I unlocked the door on PC using a cheat. Inside are an ebony sword, and a book the tells you about it. Its a door like the ones the assassins in Oblivion came out of, no real purpose. I haven't yet been able to find out who or what is supposed to use this room though.

    true, but now that I know there is a Ebony sword and a book about that sword in there. I NEED to get in there for two reasons! (1) I want that sword and (2) I want to read that book...Sounds like it can be an interesting story!!

    It may be a room only meant to be opened using console commands. I'm not familiar with any quest related to it.

    Go to the Bannered Mare in Whiterun and ask the innkeep about rumors. That should start the quest you need for that door.

    i think i had read a book somewhere (have no idea where) titled "The locked Door" and it was about a door in dragonsreach that is locked and i guess a women whispering can be heard and apparently lately the jarl has been listening to the whispering. Not sure if this is the same door or not since i havn't gone to check it out myself but its possible.

    The door is part of a quest which can only be started once you reach level 20, the starting point is talking to the in-master at the Bannered Mare, and asking about rumors.
