German lawyer and civil servant, the chief of Hitler's Reich Chancellery from 1920-1945, the head of his regular Chancellery from 1934-1945 and his Minister of State in 1937.

Meissner began his career as a law student, and in 1908, joined the Civil Service. In 1915 he served in the Infantry, and joined the Foreign Office in 1918. He became an influential advisor of President von Hindenburg, but when Hitler assumed power his loyalties shifted to the Nazi party. At the end of the war the Tribunal failed to establish him as a war criminal and, in January 1952, all proceedings were dropped.

His 1950 memoirs were titled, "Hindenburg and Hitler." He died on 27 May 1953, Munich, Germany.
