Re: Why did the Klingons get rid of the position of Emperor for 300 ye

On the other hand, we don't know whether the previous Emperor position was a hereditary one, and whether it would have been any more complicated to "elect" a new Emperor by duel or assassination than it is to "elect" a new Chancellor that way. Somehow, I don't see Klingons suffering a hereditary ruler for any length of time - or bothering with the position of Chancellor when the position of Emperor existed. Perhaps the only thing that changed three centuries prior to "Rightful Heir" was the name of the throne-related job?
