Uncrowned Princes

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum

The Uncrowned Princes were small groups of the first Legionaries created from the Primarch Lion El'Jonson's Gene-seed, who fought within the Emperor's forces during the Unification Wars.[1]

They bore names imbued with power and legend from ancient Terra and were trained by drill masters within the Imperial Laboratories. The Emperor himself named the group the Uncrowned Princes, which was both a homage to their place in the line of battle and the destiny bestowed upon them by their creator. It is a title that would inspire a sense of unity and a certain arrogance within the Princes and spurred them to lead the way amongst the growing brotherhood of the Legiones Astartes. The Uncrowned Princes would be eventually joined by other groups born from Lion El'Jonson's Gene-seed, who later became the basis for the Dark Angels Legion's Hexagrammaton formations.[1]
