Grendelsbane Station was a Royal Manticoran Navy duty station and shipyard that was established in the Grendelsbane System some time prior to 1905 PD.

The Station was supported by the second largest Manticoran fleet yard, expanding to over 50,000 Manticoran personnel in 1919 PD. Its shipyards and other orbital facilities were destroyed with nuclear devices in 1919 PD during the Havenite Operation Thunderbolt. The loss of the system was the final blow that led Michael Janvier, Baron High Ridge, to resign from the office of prime minister. (HH3, HH10)

Admiral Griffith captured 42,000 of the shipyard workers that were unable to evacuate with the Manticoran fleet commanded by Allen Higgins. These workers were later repatriated to the Star Empire of Manticore by the unilateral decision of Havenite President Eloise Pritchart as an olive branch in her attempt to end the war and create the Grand Alliance.
