Hrafnkel was a Gloriana Class Battleship and flagship of the Space Wolves fleet during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy.


The Hrafnkel was one of the largest Gloriana Class vessel alongside the Vengeful Spirit, Conqueror, and Iron Blood. The ships namesake was the mythological Fenrisian King Hrafnkel, who turned his back on the old gods and instead looked to his sons for strength in battle.[2]

During the Heresy, the ship took part in the Burning of Prospero[1] and the Battle of the Alaxxes Nebula.[2] The Hrafnkel later engaged the Vengeful Spirit during the Battle of Trisolian where it was grievously damaged but managed to escape.[3]
