presentation   This article is written from an in-universe view. The described person or event is not real but is part of the Star Trek show.


Gowron was Chancellor of the Klingon High Council in the 24th century. The klingon spelling is ghawran (1).


After the murder of Chancellor K'mpec by Duras, Jean-Luc Picard was called as surveillant for the rite of succession. After the crime was solved and Worf killed Duras, Gowron was elected as new chancellor.

With the help of Worf and his brother Kurn, Gowron is able to end a civil war. During the war with the Dominion he cancels the Khitomer Accords with the federation, after those are against the klingon attack on the Dominion. Later he sees his power threatened by Martok and gives him senseless, but difficult tasks, in hope Martok dies.

Gowron gets killed by Worf, who offers the title of the Chancellor to Martok.
