The Royal Council of the Electorate of Württemberg (German: Kronrat des Kurfürstentums Württemberg) is the supreme advisory board to the Elector, who presides directly over it. While it holds no real political power, it is a committee of 11 nobles appointed by the Elector which assists him to make decisions regarding issues of national importance.

History

The Royal Council was originally established as the Diet of the Duchy of Württemberg. After then-Duke Ulrich I declared independence from the Holy Roman Empire and crowned himself King, he dissolved the Diet and formed the first Royal Council, consisting of 11 nobles appointed by him from various places in the Kingdom. The Kronrat was allowed to continue after Ulrich agreed to rejoin the Empire as an Elector.
