|This article is about the Word Bearers Battle Barge; for the Fire Hawks vessel, see Raptorus Rex.|
The Infidus Imperator (High Gothic for "False Emperor") was the Battle Barge of Kor Phaeron, First Captain of the Word Bearers Traitor Legion.[1a] Originally dubbed the Raptorus Rex, it was re-named prior to the Battle of Calth.[1a] At the time of the battle, its captain was Antonus Antwark.
Following Phaeron's retreat, the Infidus Imperator fled Calth with the Ultramarines flagship Macragge's Honour in pursuit, leading to one of the most infamous naval duels in Imperial history.[1b] After a protracted battle, the Ultramarines succeeded in destroying the traitor ship.
