The Choral City was the capital city of the planet Isstvan III.[1a]


Before the coming of the Imperium, the city was known by the human inhabitants of Isstvan III as Khry Vanak - it was renamed "Choral City" (a Gothic translation of its original name) after the planet was brought into compliance in the Great Crusade.[1a]

When the newly-appointed Imperial Commander of the Isstvan System, Vardus Praal, rebelled against the Imperium, the Emperor of Mankind ordered Warmaster Horus to crush the rebellion with extreme prejudice. The battle that resulted was a major turning point in the history of the galaxy, as it saw the open declaration of Horus's own rebellion against the Imperium.[1b]
