The roots of the German debt system go back to 1820. At that time, the Kingdom of Prussia founded the "Prussian Central Administration of Public Debt", which, according to its founding charter, was to be an "authority completely separate from the other state and financial administrations". This independence has been preserved by them and their successor institutions. In 2006, the former Federal Securities Administration was completely dissolved and its tasks were transferred to the Finance Agency.

These Presidents Presided Over the Debt System in Germany for a Century and a Half.
