Karvan is the first Chancellor to actually rule the empire with
the death of Emperor Kadar. Karvan, already in charge of the High
Council at this point in time, simply moves the power base from the
Throne of the Emperor to the High Council itself.
Kagga ascends to the Chancellorship after Karvan is caught (and
killed) in the middle of a power struggle. Kagga holds control of the
High Council for exactly one hour, after which he is executed for
Chancellors will come to power and be removed. A period of 25
years of which no one can seem to hold control of the High Council.
This is a time of subversion and treason as members jockey for
position and power within the Empire.
Chancellor Lorak emerges victorious from the 25 year power
struggle. Lorak will be the one who has first contact with the humans
aboard the Starfleet ship 'Enterprise' NX-01.
After Lorak's death, Keth becomes Chancellor and begins a new
era of expansion, exploration and prosperity. He will have the longest
rein to date until the ascension of K'mpec.
Kadrya ascends to the Chancellorship when Keth dies of old age.
Karhammur ascends to the Chancellorship during the time of war
with the assassination of Kadrya who was too weak to be an effective
leader. (Kadrya argeed to peace with the Federation)
Mow'ga assumes leadership of the High Council upon the death of
his father in 2250. This begins the era known as the 'Second Empire'
in which children can assume control of the Council by being named as
a successor by their father.
Lokar succeeds Mow'ga. Not much is known of this event as he
only reigns for little more than a year.
Kesh assumes control of the High Council after Lokar dies in
battle with Federation Forces.
"The Visionary", as he is now known as. Gorkon
assassinates Kesh, terminates the alliance with the Romulans, and
begins peace negotiations with the Federation. He is assassinated by
those resistant to the idea before the First Khitomer Conference can
Named Chancellor of the High Council in order to conclude her
father's work. She is the only Female to ever be Chancellor.
Kaarg becomes Chancellor upon the assassination of Azetbur.
This does not go over well with his successor.
Ditagh, who had assassinated Azetbur, kills Kaarg in an Honor
Duel and becomes Chancellor (Finally).
By sheer irony, Ditagh dies of old age and is succeeded by
K'mpec challenges and kills Kravokh after he fails to divert
Klingon Forces to Khitomer to prevent the attack from the Romulans.
K'mpec was impressed with the crew of the Enterprise-C that had
responded to the Khitomer Distress Call. This paves the way to a long
lasting peace between the Federation and the Klingons. K'mpec will
have the longest reign in Klingon History.
K'mpec dies when he is poisoned by Duras. K'mpec made the
radical choice of assigning Captain Picard of the Federation as
Arbiter of Succession. Picard names Gowron as the new leader of the
High Council after Duras is killed by Worf and Toral fails in his bid
for the Chancellorship in his father's place.
Worf, disgusted with Gowron's choice of tactics during the
Dominion War, challenges Gowron to an Honor Duel and wins. By right,
he is now the new Chancellor. He holds the position for little more
than a half hour, long enough to name his friend, Martok, as
Martok assumes control of the High Council when Worf steps
aside. He helps end the Dominion War, retrieve the legendary Sword of
Kahless, and begins another new era of expansion and exploration. He's
held the Chancellorship for 7 years now and counting...
