The Gilead Crusade was an Imperial Crusade that was led by Julyanna Gilead and is notable for freeing the Gilead System from the forces of Chaos.[1]

It was launched after an Adeptus Mechanicus Explorator Fleet, discovered a System with numerous habitual worlds that were held by Heretics and Chaos Space Marines. Once the Imperium learned of this, Julyanna Gilead was chosen to command a Crusade to free the System. She was supported by countless Astra Militarum Regiments, two Imperial Navy Battlefleets and several Space Marine Chapters. The most notable being the deployment of nearly the entire Absolvers Chapter, who were led by its first Chapter Master Tygranus Dalir. The Crusade was ultimately successful in freeing the System and both were named in Julyanna's honor. Its forces would then go on to strike at worlds far beyond the Gilead System.[1]
