Gehenna Prime is an Imperial hive world which has seen a fair amount of war in its existence.

It was infiltrated by Genestealers under the guise of the Cult of the Emperor's Light. Apparently from there the cult eventually infiltrated the entire Gehenna system, and were finally destroyed by a force of the Space Wolves.[1][3]

Gehenna Prime was also the site of an Ork invasion. During the war most of the Orks besieging the hive world's capital hive were drawn off by Imperial Guard armoured companies under the command of Colonel Born Tahal. This allowed Imperial reinforcements to land at the capital and break the siege a few weeks later.[Needs Citation]

Tahal's adversary was the Ork Warlord Hargluk, the commander of the entire invasion. The Imperial army consisted of Legio Metalica Titans supported by Blood Angels Space Marines.[2]
