Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The germanic tribes up here had a form of election where the tribe of Svear chose a king at Mora stenar (exact forms of election unknown) who then had to travel to each landskap and there respect the local laws. If he failed to follow the local laws he could be killed, if so the process started over.

I think better processes could be designed,.
