  Chancellor of Germany - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Archbishop of Mainz was German Chancellor until the end of the Holy Roman Empire in 2005 while the Archbishop of Cologne was Chancellor of Italy and the Archbishop of Trier of Burgundy.

This was the case with Chancellor Gerhard Schröder from 1999 until he resigned the chairmanship of the SPD in 2004.

The new constitution of the 1919 Weimar Republic said that the Chancellor was appointed by the Federal President, but that the parliament had the right to dismiss a chancellor or any of the ministers.
The chancellor is the only member of the government elected by the Bundestag, the ministers are chosen by the chancellor himself (officially nominated by the Bundespräsident).
Unlike other parliamentary legislatures, the Bundestag cannot remove the chancellor simply with a Motion of No Confidence since, in the Weimar Republic, this procedure was abused by parties of both political extremes in order to oppose chancellors and undermine the democratic process.

 Vice-Chancellor of Germany - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Vice-Chancellor of Germany (Vizekanzler) in Germany is the second highest position in the government, and is usually held by the leader of the government's principal coalition partner.
However, the current Vice Chancellor is Labour Minister Franz Müntefering, who had been Chairman of the junior coalition partner SPD during the coalition talks.
Also unlike the US Vice President, the Vice-Chancellor will not automatically become Chancellor for the rest of the term if the Chancellor dies or becomes unable to fulfill his duties in any other way.

 The Chancellor of Germany - German Government and Politics
For that reason, some observers refer to the German political system as a "chancellor democracy." The chancellor's authority emanates from the provisions of the Basic Law and from his or her status as leader of the party or coalition of parties holding a majority of seats in the Bundestag.
The constructive no-confidence vote makes it harder to remove a chancellor because opponents of the chancellor not only must disagree with his or her governing but also must agree on a replacement.
Although not commonly used, this procedure enables the chancellor to gauge support in the Bundestag for the government and to increase pressure on the Bundestag to vote in favor of legislation that the government considers as critical.

 New chancellor will give Germany, U.S. a chance for a new dialogue | The San Diego Union-Tribune
Merkel is the first female chancellor in Germany's history; the first leader who spent most of her life under Communist rule; and the first head of a coalition between the two major German parties since 1969.
Angela Merkel becomes chancellor at a moment of crisis for her country, poised between domestic reform and economic doldrums and social deadlock; between stalemate and new creativity on European integration; and between tradition and the need for new patterns in the Atlantic Alliance.
In Germany, the Merkel government marks the advent of a third postwar generation: less in thrall to the emotional pro-Americanism of the 1950s and 1960s but neither shaped by the passions of the so-called '68 generation.
