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.[1] Eventually the civil conflict spread to the Adeptus Mechanicus, resulting in the Moirae Schism.[2] 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.[1][3] 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.[3] Other major battles of the civil war included the Tellarite Rebellion.[4]

Later, during the Hrakon Campaign, the Dark Angels cornered the rebel leader Obidiah Hrakon, who had been a key supporter of Nova Terra.[3]

Far from Nova Terra, it is said that the Realm of Ultramar was strengthened by the Interregnum and was free of the turmoil that beset the rest of the Imperium.[6]
