No it isn't true, when they say "took an arrow in the knee" it's actually an in joke by Bethesda referencing the fact that there are no Greaves in Skyrim, and are instead merged with Armor - There is nothing in Elder Scrolls lore that suggests this is slang for proposing.

I don't think so. If it is, it's mostly unintentional. It's really a joke about how Skyrim doesn't have any greaves, unlike other Elder Scrolls games

That's what I heard when the game first came out.

I, personally believe that this is true. Although I have no source of anything to back me up. It's the game's fluff, anyway.
There's something someone should research: Greg Keyes' Elder Scrolls novels. There might be something relating to this somewhere. (I'm currently reading Infernal City)

Think of all the husbands and wives you mercilessly slaughtered because of this.

no, this is not true. as a Dane with extensive nordic knowledge, i can tell you that there is no such saying as "Tage en pil til kn├Žet" or taking an arrow to the knee in any form.

I'm a dane to and I haven't ever heard about it either. But even if it's not danish it could still be Swedish, Norwegian or Finish.

no way it's Finnish.

to us an arrow to the knee is just an arrow to the knee.

it's not about real life nordic. it's about the race from skyrim, the nords.
