Some Space Marines, obviously quite a lot - be they First Captains, Lord Commanders, retinues, bodyguards or any other attendants.

Others, very rarely. Shiban Khan in Brotherhood of the Storm, for example, recklessly abandons sensible combat doctrine whilst fighting on Chondax just to get to witness the Khagan in combat.

Remember, the Legions (with 1 or 2 exceptions) were scattered throughout various Expeditionary Fleets and only rarely mustered as a single, coherent Legion. Thus some Space Marines, Captains or Battle-Groups may well have been absent from the central command of their Legion for decades.
