Head of State was the political title of the leader of both the Separatist Council and Senate of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During the Separatist Crisis and Clone Wars, it was held by Count Dooku. After Dooku's death during the Battle of Coruscant, General Grievous became the Confederacy's de facto Head of State.
