Gethsamaine is an Imperial world of the Coronid Deeps region of space.[1]

It was Colonized 64 years before the Horus Heresy in 942.M30 after being accidentally discovered by Merchant Fleet Captains. A lush and fertile world filled with rain forests, it was hoped it would be a base for further human expansion into space. As a result it was rapidly colonized, destroying many of its rain forests.[1]

During the Battle of the Coronid Deeps of the Horus Heresy, the planet was cut off by Warp Storms and ravaged by traitor forces.[1] Eventually, the planet surrendered to Horus' followers, only for loyalists under Autek Mor to use nuclear weapons to completely depopulate Gethsamaine.[2]
