This will need to be updated soon ;-) On a different note, you might consider to accept Herbert Frahm for Willy Brandt as an easter egg.

Is Scholz official yet? I don't think the was voted by the parliament yet. It's still formally Merkel.

How cool that this quiz made it! :) For anyone who'd like a quick overview of who these people were, go to this blog article. I had meant to write for a long time, and now this quiz getting selected has made me finally do it.

What about Walter Scheel, who was Acting Chancellor for one cabinet meeting during the Guillaume Affair? Is that too obscure?

Acting Chancellor means that he filled the role of a chancellor, without being one. He was the Vice Chancellor at the time.

During the Weimar Republic alone, there were 16 Chancellors - more than one per year! Only hardcore history nerds will know all of them. From the top of my head, there's Ebert, Stresemann, Brüning, Papen and Schleicher, the last one before Hitler. Schleicher is easy to remember since it means "crawler" or, figuratively, "brown-noser" in German.
