Jochen von Remscheid (Japanese: ヨッフェン・フォン・レムシャイド) was a former Imperial high commissioner to Fezzan who established himself as the prime minister of the 'legitimate' government-in-exile on Heinessen.



In 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE), Remscheid was informed by Adrian Rubinsky about the large-scale invasion of the Empire which the Free Planets Alliance was planning. He reported this information to Odin. (LOGH: 'Invasion of the Imperial Territory')

During the Imperial Civil War, he most likely supported the Lippstadt League. After the victory of Reinhard von Lohengramm and his supporters in the civil war, Count Remscheid agreed to take part in a plan created by Rubinsky and Rupert Kesselring to form a Goldenbaum government-in-exile in the Alliance. Two former Lippstadt officers, Alfred von Landsberg and Leopold Schumacher, managed to kidnap the young kaiser, Erwin Josef II, and fled via Fezzan to the Alliance with Remscheid. There, in 798 UC (489 IC / 3598 CE), he announced the creation of a "Galactic Empire Legitimate Government" with the aim of countering Lohengramm and restoring the Goldenbaum Dynasty's power. (LOGH: 'One Narrow Thread', 'The Abduction of the Young Emperor', 'Operation: Ragnarök')

Remscheid led the 'legitimate' government on Heinessen until 799 UC (1 NIC / 490 IC / 3599 CE), when the Alliance was invaded by the Empire in Operation Ragnarok. The count committed suicide when surrounded by Imperial troops while most of the other government members were taken into Imperial custody. (LOGH: 'The Cold Spell Arrives', 'The Darkness Before Dawn', 'Long Live the Emperor!')
