Nova Terra, formerly known as Constantinium, is an Imperial world in the Segmentum Pacificus.[2b] It is best known for having sworn off the reign of the Imperium twice in history, first during the age known as the Nova Terra Interregnum, and again during the Constaninus Iconoclasm, before being returned to the Imperium's fold both times.[3]

Nova Terra Interregnum

In the early 35st millennium the Ur-Council of Nova Terra declared themselves independent from the High Lords of Terra and claimed rule of the Segmentum Pacificus. Their reign became known as the Nova Terra Interregnum and lasted for nine centuries. It ended with the outbreak of the religious wars with the Ecclesiarchy known as the Cataclysm of Souls.[2a] The planet was raided by the Ravenwing of the Dark Angels during the conflict after they suspected that the mysterious Cypher was a member of the Ur-Council, though they failed to secure any prisoner.[4]

Constantinus Iconoclasm

In M41, Nova Terra was again the site of major upheaval when the Renegade Space Marine Constantinus launched a rebellion against Imperial rule.[1]
