I think you're right about Herr Weissgesicht, Willem, but he would be Dr Whiteface, head of the Fools Guild. :)

Cheery am I right that Witwenmacher translates literally as Widowmaker? - Great name for Vetinari if so :)

Sorry, Witwenmacher isn't Vetinari. But he went to the same school. :wink:

EDIT: Vetinari's called Vetinari in the german version too. "Cut-me-own-throat-Dibbler" is "Treibe-mich-selbst-in-den-Ruin-Schnapper"
