Chairs like this have a weak spot where they break. I’ve done this
sort of repair a couple of times, excavating a mortise using a plunge
router and filling it with a loose tenon and carving the tenon down
to fit. I think I glued the broken ends together before routing.

Nice looking fix there, now to dye/color the plug to match the chair.
