Deep Space 9

It was thought at one time that Gowron had been replaced by a Changeling due to his decisions, however, it was revealed during an Order of the Bat'leth ceremony that Gowron was not a Changeling. Gowron had been heavily influenced by General Martok who was the actual Changeling.

Under Changeling Influence

General Martok had been abducted and replaced by a Changeling. Martok had a great influence on Gowron that worried Deep Space 9. Worf and Odo planned to unmask Gowron as a Changeling but they would soon discover who actually was the traitor.

After Martok was unmasked, Gowron rowed back on some of the decisions that he had made. Martok had persuaded Gowron to insist on the return of some lost territory which proved to be a problem. Once Martok had been unmasked, the request was withdrawn for now.

Death of Gowron

Gowron had installed Martok as leader of the Klingon forces in The Dominion War. As the war was coming to an end, Gowron sought to take a more hands on approach with the war which angered both Martok and Worf.

Martok didn't want to challenge Gowron for the throne so Worf did so instead. Gowron and Worf fought with Worf coming out as victor. Worf didn't want to be Chancellor, instead he chose Martok to be the new Chancellor who accepted with reservation.
