If the Germans had won World War 2, who would have succeeded Hitler as the Führer of Germany? For this scenario, let's say Hitler dies in the early to mid 50's. I would rule out Hess, as he was completely nuts and was losing the favour of Hitler, and Göring, as Hitler hated him for several reasons. In my view Himmler, Goebbels and Bormann are the likely candidates. However, another option is possible. Nazi Germany might fall apart, as political infighting, semi-suppressed by the ministries devotion to Hitler, would explode into something near a civil war. Do any of these seem likely?
