The current head of the House of Hartmann is Rupert II, Prince of Prussia, Emperor William of North America's maternal grandfather.
House of Hartmann-Peters

The Hartmann family arrived from Prussia as well around 1869. Members of the Peters family came in 1884. The Empire of New Europe was initially ruled under the House of Hartmann in early 2009 before the nation unified with several others to form the North American Confederation. The family as it is today was founded by Emperor William I by imperial proclamation on 27 April 2009, with the Hartmann's taking seniority in the line of succession of New Europe and the Peters for the NAC.
