This page is to document all German Union Chancellors from its implementation to its disbanding. Note, the years of 1441-1445 do not have a chancellor.
Heinrich von Wasserburg (1445-1449)
Heinrich von Wasserburg was a Bavarian candidate for the German Union Chancellery. He was campaigning against Adolf Adelzhausen-Brandt for the May-July Primaries. He won with a percentage vote of 68%. He was moved onto the General Election, facing Archbishop Victor Friedel from Hesse, Johann von Osna from Oldenburg, and Bernhard Marius from Hamburg. In the election, he was voted first of the four, beating Bernhard Marius, who came second.
Rule As Chancellor
He was not a particularly active Chancellor, not doing much in the Union until the last three years of his reign. In those three years, he proposed two laws. One was in 1446, the Alliance and Merchant Act. It made a permanent alliance between all members of the Union, as well as a permanent trade agreement, and allowed the use of Landshut for economic and trade uses. His second legislation was the Militia and Navy Act, in 1448. This act was to make a military force from all the member nations in order to protect Baltic Sea trade.
Heinrich von Welfsina (1450-1454)
Heinrich von Welfinsa was a Hessian candidate for the German Union Chancellery. He campaigned against Albrecht Elderwech in the primaries, winning at 85%. He then moved to the General Election, up against Heinrich von Wasserburg from Bavaria, Wilhelm von Luneburg from Hamburg, and Johann Alburg from Oldenburg. He won against Wilhelm von Luneburg, who came second in the elections.
Rule As Chancellor
He at first did not do much until his last year as Chancellor. In the last year, he proposed three laws, the Territorial Successionist Act, the Chancellery Army Act, and the Call To Arms Act. The TS Act detailed the Chancellor's power to take any land from a country and put it into the hands of another in the event of a major war for protection of the populous. The CA Act detailed an army raised specifically for the protection of the Chancellor and his home in Osnabruck. The army would compose of 1,000 men, 250 men coming from each nation. The final act, the CTA Act, detailed the Chancellor's power to make any country go to war with a non-member state. The act also stated the Chancellor could switch a nation's side in the war. (Example, Austria & Hamburg VS Prussia. The Chancellor could make Hamburg switch to Prussia's side.)
