A Gauleiter (German pronunciation: [ˈɡaʊlaɪtɐ]) was the party leader of a regional branch of the Nazi Party or the head of a Gauor Reichsgau. The word can be singular or plural, depending on its context. Gauleiter was the second highest Nazi Party paramilitary rank, subordinate only to the higher rank Reichsleiter and to the position of Führer. During World War II, the rank of Gauleiter was obtained only by direct appointment from Adolf Hitler.
Carl Georg Röver (12 February 1889 in Lemwerder – 15 May 1942 in Berlin) was a German Nazi Partyofficial. His main posts were as Gauleiter of Weser-Ems and Reichsstatthalter of Oldenburg/Bremen.
Röver saw service in the First World War, initially with the regular army before joining the Propaganda department of the Oberste Heeresleitung. He became a member of the Nazi Party in 1923. He also joined the Sturmabteilung, rising to the rank of Obergruppenführer.
