Chancelleries were staffed with officials known as the chancellists (Polish: kancelista): the regent (regent kancelarii), secretaries (sekretarz in Crown)
The staff of Chancellery had no wage, just like the Chancellors, but in the middle of each reception room was the box into which all clients were supposed to deposit a varying amount of money, and nobody who planned on coming back could afford to be mean.
The officials of the chancelleries, who often started their work after their studies, after several years of work, often went forward in the administrative hierarchy, often reaching important posts of bishops or other ecclesiastic or secular offices.
Thus, such a title includes a proper name of the region or an ethnical group that gives its name to the region (before the 13th centuries territorial and ethnical names were often interchangeable (e.g., "King of the English" and "King of England").
Later chancelleries used either territorial or ethnical names (latter were used less often).
Chancelleries of those administrations issued documents with their own local versions of the ruler's titles.
