Talk:Franz von Mariendorf
From Gineipaedia, the Legend of Galactic Heroes wiki
I'm sure everyone is going to get tired of me asking all these highly technical questions about this stuff, but does anyone know what the translations for the positions Count Mariendorf holds are? Are they the same as Lichtenlade's pre-Civil War title or are they different (e.g. Minister or Secretary of State)? I know it's not prime minister since Reinhard once again abolished that title and ruled directly as head of state and government plus maintaining his position as commander-in-chief.
Also, does his title change between the time he is appointed in Series 3 and the time he retires in Series 4? The last subs I recall seeing, I believe I recall him being referred to a Secretary of State and then later as Minister or Chief Minister of Internal/Interior Affairs. Despite the fact that Osmayer is "Internal Affairs" which means I'm assuming he is Heydrich Lang's boss. Anyone know the translations from other mediums? Might help shed some light.

- Count Mariendorf did not hold any cabinet positions during the Goldenbaum Dynasty. He became the first Minister of State (国務尚書) of the Lohengramm Dynasty after Reinhard seized the throne in Series 3. Since there were no Prime Ministers, Mariendorf was effectively the top minister of Reinhard's cabinet akin to Lichtenlade before. Osmayer was the Minister of Internal Affairs (内務尚書), which is a different ministry altogether. And yes, he's the direct superior of Lang. Glacierfairy 04:27, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
- That's what I thought. Thanks! Does his position remain the same until his retirement when Reinhard and Hilde got married? Again, subs I've seen aren't consistent between Series 3 and 4. SUPCOM0356 15:42, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
- Yes, he remained as Minister of State until he retired upon Reinhard and Hilde's marriage. Glacierfairy 16:09, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
