Hesse-Engelburg's ruler's last name would be Blauerwolf.

We should probably also include the secondary nations and aggressor states as well:

Landgraviate of Ober-Schweinsberg - Landgraf Arnold/Landgraf Ansgar (disputed/civil war)

Bad Nachtschwein League - Oberbürgermeister Fritz Abendroth

Prince Ruprecht VII is the current heir to the throne of the Electorate of Zichenau -- mortal enemy to the Grand Duchy of Stollen.

For the last year, Ruprecht has reportedly been in the North American colonies, living with his paramour Princess Valerie of Pillau-Zerbst, who was betrothed to the French Mercenary General Philip de Lattte before she and Ruprecht fled to America a year ago.

However, rumors suggest the 24 year old Ruprecht is now on his way back to the old country, to assume his rightful place among the rulers of imaginary 18th century Europe. How this bodes for Stollen remains to be seen.

Best Regards,

Stokes Schwartz

Unlike some others I have not put into my imagi'nation' the ruler up to the 1750's time period.

I have only figured things out to the 1650's.

So it will have to do for now.

First of all, it's Der Hertzhog Stanken Fhartz ... the "z" is definitely a part of it
:)
There exists a fairly exhaustive of personnel in one of the earlier posts of the Frankszonia blog ... including the Princess Stuftliana, but the infant Urpprinz Honker is not listed there yet ...
:D

Saxe-Bearstein is, more properly, the Principality of Saxe-Bearstein. The ruler is indeed Furst Bruno (fifth of that name), and he is THE head of the von Ursa family.

Stagonia (enemy of all right-thinking people, but especially of Saxe-Bearstein) is too vile to be a Duchy, Electorate, Principality, etc. . . . so it is only known by its vile name, Stagonia.

It is ruled by Graf Maurice von Hirschbock (a vile human being), so if you want an alternate title "the Vile" is as good as any.

I have posted on my blog the member states of the League and their rulers.
The League itself is "ruled" by a council, comprised of representatives from the member states, but the council only refers issues to the member states, which then make their own determinations, each in their own way, then the matter is rehashed by the council. This can go back and forth until a consensus is reached. The council is "chaired" by your humble servant the first minister, Minister-at-Large Zurik Fitz-Badger, who is also the mayor of Soweiterstadt.

Sometime aggressor:
The Batrachian Empire, King Leroy XV (or XIV or XVI, nobody can keep it straight)

Alzheim is an andient Kingdom, possibly founded by one of Alexanders lieutenants, Antipater the Misplaced. In later times it was absorbed by the Roman Republic and narrowly avoided the fate of Pompeii by means of a lucky shift in wind direction.

During the Dark Ages it may be said that the noble riders of Alzheim cleared the land of roaming bands of Uruk Hai while during the 30 Years' War Alzheim espoused the (illegible) cause and was frequently at war with her neighbours, especially the Vulgarians whose brand of Orthodox Christianity was distastful to the rulers of Alzheim. It was at this time that Alzheims' ruling house acceeded to the crown of a tiny Italian Kingdom - hence the title "King in Alzheim".

In later years Alzheim has gratefully slumped into the ruck of the second tier of Europas' statelets.
