Provincia Germania (Nova Roma)
|Cn. Cornelius Lentulus
legatus pro praetore
Provincia Germania is a province of Nova Roma which was re-established in the modern era a.d. IV Non. Feb. ‡ Q. Maximo M. Minucio cos. ‡ MMDCCLIII a.u.c.. The Nova Roman Germania contains the countries of Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
Cn. Cornelius Lentulus, the temporary legatus pro praetore (governor) of Provincia Germania and dux of the Dioecesis of Europa Celtica et Germanica (Germania, Gallia, Britannia and Thule) has been chosen by the senate, due to his successful work in revitalizing other inactive subdivisions of Nova Roma, and has been given the task to establish a solid structure, administration and basic, functioning community for Germania. Currently, due to its inactivity, our Germania province is organizationally joined up with the provinces of Gallia, Britannia and Thule, and is part of the temporary umbrella unit the Dioecesis Europae Celticae et Germanicae, which was put under Cn. Lentulus' responsibility as its dux. His task is to do the same reorganization in these provinces, and to give them back to local leaders as soon as possible.
The province has two subdivisions, Regio Germania Inferior et Superior et Magna (Germany), led by provincial proquaestor C. Flavius Stilicho and Regio Noricum et Raetia (Austria and Switzerland), led by proquaestor C. Artorius Praeconinus. The Netherlands and Liechtenstein are not part of any regio.
The Germanian legatus of Cn. Lentulus, C. Artorius Praeconinus is working on several projects for the vitalization of our province in Germania.
