The Huey Tlatcani was chosen by the four "head's" of the city council, hereditary had something to do with it.


The historians ain't really sure how the Huey Tlatcani was elected, what they know is that he was elected by the four "heads" of the council. These was in turn elected by the council itself, most of the historians agree that hereditary has something with the elections of the emperor. What they don't know is how important this was.

They could obtain it by their uncle father, mother- i dont think their was ever a girl emperor, brothers,sister nephews that died.

Or they had to do something really big in order to deserve that rank- death_Notes
