# Keep Footnote Number with Chapter Title

I need to have a footnote attached to a word which forms a chapter heading; unfortunately, the footnote number appears lines below the word that needs to be explained.The footnote should be a superscript. MWE:

\documentclass[paper=9cm:16cm,DIV=15,fontsize=9pt,twocolumn,]{scrbook}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}

\chapter{Apay}\footnote{I arise'' in Guaran\'{i}.
}

\blindtext

\end{document}

• I do the same here using footnotemark/footnotetext (instead of footnote) and prefixing footnotemark with \protect – lAtExFaN Jun 15 '19 at 6:00

\documentclass[paper=9cm:16cm,DIV=15,fontsize=9pt,twocolumn,]{scrbook}
\footnotetext{I arise'' in Guaran\'{i}.}
