The Posadnyk of Montescano is the head of government of the Principality of Montescano. The Posadnyk is appointed by the Monarch, from amongst the members of the Council of State. While the Monarch is free to chose any of its members, the Monarch has up to date only picked candidates which can command confidence from the Council.


Posadnyk comes from the Old Church Slavic "posaditi", which means to put or to place. They were so-called because the Prince in Kiev and later in Vladimir-Suzdal and Moscow placed them in the city to rule on his behalf. In Novgorod the Great they were elected locally until the Grand Prince of Moscow ended a rebellion and spoke to Archbishop Feofil (1470-1480) "there will be no posadnik, and we will conduct our own government"[1]
