Gerhart "Gert" Henneman, 5th Prince of Roseland is the Mayor of Cape Cross and former President of Brunant. He is presently a left-wing politician with the Social Democrats, the leader of the party until July 2016.

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Gert Henneman was born to Josef Henneman (1921-1989) and Maria Van Draak (1928, Donderstad), a Brunanter-Austrian couple. His father was Austrian, and his mother is descended from the Royal Family. She is a granddaughter of King Pieter II. They owned a small deli in Donderstad's Centralplatz (the town square). Hennman did his schooling at Benicar Primary School and Aragona College. Gert did one year as a reservist in the Royal Guard (with the 14th Company) in 1978 before doing his postsecondary education at Carrington College (in Carrington) from 1979-1983.

AncestryEdit

Gert is descended from the Royal Family through his mother, and is 34th in Line of Succession to the Throne of Brunant.

Henneman is directly descended from Founding father Philip Henneman. In the 17th century his family moved to Austria but his grandfather moved to Brunant in the early 20th century. His paternal grandmother is of Cuban and Barzuna origin, and Henneman speaks the language rather well. He is a second cousin once removed of Queen Helene of Brunant.

Early careerEdit

In 1985, he joined the conservative Christian CDU as he supported traditional values and personal liberties, though was part of the more liberal faction. Henneman was one of the supporters of the Christian and Social-Democrat Coalition, an alliance of the CDU and SDP in congress. In 1989 he was elected to the House of Representatives. He was with them until 1991. That year, his wife, Marta Henneman was shot by a man with an illegal gun. In a rare and spectacular move, he quit the CU Party, who was pro-guns and switched to the SDP party while still in congress.[1] He would be re-elected in 1994 by a slim majority. In 1998 he was elected to the Senate. He became the SDP chairman in 2000.

In 1999, he was briefly appointed Justice minister before assuming the post of Health and Welfare minister. One of his largest program, though criticized by many was to reduce spending at the Dept. of Welfare. He spearheaded reforms to reduce cash handouts to unemployed and instead introduced programs to assist them in training for other positions, and many others were hired to public works programs and other public jobs.

PresidencyEdit

He held a number of posts before being elected President in 2002. As president he oversaw... He was re-elected in 2008 to a second and final six-year term. By the start of his second term and the onset of the global recession, it was agreed that there was a need to streamline government in some sectors and the president would propose a plan to "phase out" the office of president, as the system of dual head of state was highly efficient. At the end of his second term in 2014, the office was officially abolished following a referendum.

Following the ned of his presidency he announced he might move into local politics in Cape Cross or take up a teaching position at the Royal University of Koningstad. Henneman decided to run in the 2015 Municipal Elections in Cape Cross, and was selected as mayor.

Following his election as mayor, he was contemplating his role in the leadership of the party and he announced his resignation in July 2016, wishing to have the party led by "a new generation" of Social Democrats.

Personal LifeEdit

His passport

In 1987, he married Marta Henneman and they had 2 kids, Henrik (born 1989) and Annelise (born 1992). On November 2010, Henneman met a young university student Davina Rose at a private party held in his house. Davina was then a roommate and a close friend of his daughter Annelise, who invited her to the party. The two began a close relationship and they were soon photographed at various private outings. On August 22, 2011, Davina gave a birth to a baby girl. Henneman acknowledged several days later that the newborn child was his daughter, Jessica Henneman.

Henneman and his wife proceeded to divorce, which was finalized on December 15. Four months after the divorce, Henneman formally proposed to Davina, thereby publicly acknowledging their relationship for the first time. They married on April 23, 2012 at the Rose Palace in Rosetown. Upon his marriage, he became the new Prince of Roseland.

President Henneman owns various cars, including a Jaguar XF and a 1949 Martell-Werner.

Gert Henneman is an amateur historian and has translated a number of Barzuna books into English and Dutch. In 1999 he co-authored the book Under the Boot, along with Gustaf Hillerbrand and Maria Franza.

Henneman is known for going every summer to Libertas, where he visits his aunt living there. Henneman has now taken up residence in Koningstad, in the Ocean Apartments.

Recently, a photograph of his has surfaced on the internet from his old secondary school years, which he is not particularly pleased at seeing it circulate, due to his self-proclaimed <<horrible 1970s style>>.
