Also, like the Kingdom of Poland. Also, like the Kingdom of Sweden until 1544, the Kingdom of England until Plantagenet times, and the Kingdom of France until the 13th century. It's common for European monarchies to have been originally elective and gone through a phase in which the king forced the electors to elect a designated heir as co-king before developing into legally hereditary monarchies. The boundaries are often blurry.
