The Royal Manticoran Navy (abbrev: RMN) is a fictional space navy depicted in the Honorverse canon by author David Weber. Because the majority of these stories relate the adventures of Honor Harrington and other RMN personnel, RMN is the branch portrayed by the majority of members of The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, Inc..
Although they share the same name, the RMN as a branch is commonly differentiated from the overall fan organization of which it is a component by differing acronyms:
- TRMN (or tRMN): the fan organization as a whole.
- RMN: the naval branch of TRMN.
Members of this branch hold naval rank or rate and may wear the various orders of RMN uniform. Originally, meeting chapters of TRMN were organized as ships of the RMN, titled HMS <<name>>, and collectively formed the fleet of the RMN.
The RMN is geographically organized into regional fleets, and the worldwide management functions are run by the Admiralty bureaus. The commanding officer of the RMN is the First Space Lord (1SL). The 1SL reports to the First Lord of the Admiralty, who is the overall head of TRMN.
