Questions about the Grey Beards

My Question being, could the grey beards hear, sense, or feel a dragonborn if they were outside of skyrim? I don't actually know how the Grey Beards found out the dragonborn was around, i assumed they heard the powerful thu'um or maybe sensed the dragon soul being consumed. So i thought my question need answering like could the Grey Beards hear a dragonborn that was well born in say Black Marsh or Elsweyr? Because i at least know that the dragonborn does not need to be "Dragonnord"... ok enough puns for me.

So, the Greybeards probably heard the thuum. In that case, they might not hear it in Black Marsh, but maybe in Eastern High Rock, Western Morrowind, or Northern Cyrodiil. However, the thuum is much more powerful in lore than in game, and it says that Skyrim trembles, and great storms form when the Greybeards speak, as well as the fact that masters wore gags because even a word could kill someone. So maybe in lore. But I doubt it, it would probably have to be closer. You should also remember that provinces' borders don't dictate anything other than political and sometimes cultural changes. So it just wouldn't make sense if the Greybeards couldn't reach even a little bit over the border. Ven aak hei.

Thanks for the answer, of course i knew that borders are all political. I mean it would be silly if the provinces were seperated by say, a giant fence that spanned the entire borders. I was more using the province as a reference of distance.

I think it would depend on how powerful the individual greybeard was and how far away the dovahkiin was exactly. We know that they can sense the thu'um from word walls and provide the location (lore wise it would probably be less exact than in game) so I think there is a good chance they could, yes. Although perhaps the greater the distance the fainter the signal.

I believe that their connection to the Dragonborn comes from [Kaan] herself, as the Greybeards have almost become one with her...

...and by 'become one with her,' I don't mean...
