Actually, I think that BirthRight is correct in handling rulers. Rulers
are not those with the highest "level", but those who have the Divine
Right to be the ruler. In the "real world" the kings and such went
around claiming to have this right, but in BR they literally do have the
Divine Right to be king. There's nothing special about 6th-8th level
characters that suddenly they can become kings.

Now that's not to say that some high level thug isn't going to come
along, knock off the rightful ruler, and take over.
