The Nova Terra Interregnum is also known as the time of twin Empires and lasted for nine centuries.
The Ur-Council of Nova Terra dismissed the authority of the High Lords and claimed rule of the Segmentum Pacificus. Eventually the civil conflict spread to the Adeptus Mechanicus, resulting in the Moirae Schism. During the Cataclysm of Souls in 975.M35 the Ecclesiarchy tried to unite the Imperium as a religious state. Their efforts ended in massive religious wars against the Ur-Council in a civil war unseen since the Horus Heresy. During the fighting, the Dark Angels made a daring attack upon Nova Terra upon suspecting that the mysterious Cypher was the member of the Ur-Council known as the Saviour of Praxus, though they failed to secure any prisoner. Other major battles of the civil war included the Tellarite Rebellion.
