The Klingon Empire is ruled by a Chancellor with the support of the Klingon High Council.  When the Chancellor dies, his replacement is chosen by an [[Arbiter of Succession]], who chooses from eligible candidates (usually Council members themselves) based on rules established in Klingon law.  A Chancellor with some foresight can decide who will be the Arbiter of Succession after his own death.

The Klingon Empire is ruled by a Chancellor with the support of the Klingon High Council.  If a Chancellor dies of natural causes, his replacement is chosen by an [[Arbiter of Succession]], who chooses from eligible candidates (usually Council members themselves) in a process called the Rite of Ascension, based on rules established in Klingon law.  A Chancellor with some foresight can decide who will be the Arbiter of Succession after his own death.  On the other hand, if the reigning Chancellor is killed by another Klingon, then the killer has the right to claim the Chancellor's position, or to appoint a new one (unless the killer is unidentified, in which case the Rite of Ascension takes place).  Shockingly, a Klingon's combat skills seem to be the main method of determining their suitability of the the Chancellor's role, rather than any political skills.
