Diadem of 12 Stars is the debut album of the black metal band Wolves in the Throne Room. It was this recording that caught the attention of Southern Lord Records, who subsequently signed the band in late 2006 and re-released the album on vinyl. It was subsequently re-issued in 2016 through the band's own imprint, Artemisia Records.

The album was co-produced and engineered by Tim Green, who was also a producer for Weakling; a band which Wolves in the Throne Room have cited as one of their main early influences.[5][6]
