The Council of State is normally appointed by a new Emperor of the Empire to advise him. [1]

Mattheus II, grandfather of the current Emperor, Karl Franz and a strong believer in democracy attempted to write a formal constitution around the Council of State, but this was blocked by the suspicious Electors. [1]

Composition

The Council always includes the Grand Theogonist of Sigmar but is also made up members of the most ancient noble families. [1]

Power

The council has no official power but controls access to the Emperor and advise him on finance, the military and other important matters. [1]
