List of Great Ministers of Tibet

Tibetan Empire had nine high ministers in court. The highest one was "gung lön chen po" (གུང་བློན་ཆེན་པོ, "lön chen" (བློན་ཆེན) for short), which could be traslated into English as "Great Minister".

The first Great Minister was appointed during Detrul Namshungtsen's reign. It was abolished before the Era of Fragmentation.

Here is a complete list of the Great Minister according to The Old Tibetan Chronicle (P.T. 1287).
