Ideally the new emperor was the old emperor's heir, or someone that the previous emperor appointed. In reality, there was often chaos on the death of an emperor, as many times the emperors did not appoint anyone to succeed them. When this occurred there was a political scramble for the top job, with bribes liberally distributed. Ultimately the senate confirmed the new man as emperor, but this was a technicality, as during the principate the senate was no more than a rubber stamp.
