Levenbrech is a military title given to the aide of a Bashar, and consequently probably not a specific rank as such, but following contemporary practices, most likely held by an officer with rank analogous to a modern lieutenant or captain.


It is mentioned in Children of Dune. A Sardaukar trainer is described as holding the rank of Levenbrech.

Behind the ScenesEdit

The word Levenbrech means "Life-Breaker" in a combination of Dutch and German. It might imply that the officer's job is to break the life of his opponents or to harshly discipline his subordinates by breaking their spirits. Another meaning is that the officer is a long-service career ("Life") officer ("Breaker").
