Albion II is the second planet in the Albion system.
Albion was colonized before the beginning of Operation: KLONDIKE in 2821. Several Clans had early colonies on Albion, including Clan Blood Spirit. As internecine Clan combat began in earnest, especially following the Trial of Annihilation of the Not-Named Clan and leading to the death of Nicholas Kerensky, Clan Blood Spirit became targeted beyond its ability to endure. The Blood Spirits lost their Albion possessions before 2835.
In 2912, Clan Coyote's Omicron Galaxy, under Galaxy Commander David Christofferson, would win a great victory against Clan Smoke Jaguar's enclave on Albion after the Jaguar citizens revolted against the warrior caste on many of their worlds.

- According to a blog posting by author Blaine Lee Pardoe, back when he created the first map of Clan space (for the 1991 Wolf Clan Sourcebook) he named the Albion system after a small town in Michigan.
- The first printing of Field Manual: Updates listed Albion as being 100% controlled by Clan Snow Raven. This proved to be erroneous, now listed on canon BattleTech website as planet being complete control of Clan Star Adder.
