Under agnatic seniority or patrilineal seniority, succession to the throne passes to the monarch's next-eldest brother (even if the monarch has his own sons), and then only to the monarch's children (the next generation) after males of the eldest generation have all been exhausted.
Primogeniture is the practical opposite of agnatic seniority, as younger brothers are excluded in favor of the first-born son and his heirs.
However, the principle of agnatic primogeniture later became dominant, although succession to the throne at the death of the monarch could be claimed by any male blood relative of the Emperor - sons, brothers, uncles or cousins.

 Primogeniture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Agnatic primogeniture or patrilineal primogeniture is inheritance according to seniority of age, as reckoned among descendants and then collateral kin through the male line, by the eldest male child (if there is a male child).
A case of agnatic primogeniture is exemplified in the French royal milieu, the Salic Law (attributed to the Salian Franks) forbade any inheritance of a crown through the female line.
Later, when lands were strictly divided among noble families and tended to remain fixed, agnatic primogeniture (practically the same as Salic Law) became the most usual: succession going to the eldest son of the monarch; if the monarch had no sons, the throne would pass to the nearest male relative through male line.

 The structural articulation of generations in Africa
All turns upon the parent-child relationship, senior to junior, and what gives this relationship its especial force is its setting within the corporate organization of lineage groups.
The situation is very different for eastern and southern Bantu, where larger lineage groupings certainly exist but where the emphasis in the corporate organization of kin-groupings lies rather at the lower level of the unitary homestead associated with the compound or extended family.
The importance of the parent-child relationship is such that it is extended, both terminologically and behaviourially, to relevant kin at any generational remove, so that a ?father?, to whom respect is due, may be a senior relative of ego?s own generation, of his father?s, grandfather?s or great-grandfather?s, without concern for generational standing as such.

The children of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, for example, were excluded from the order of succession to the thrones of Austria and Hungary because their parents had a morganatic marriage that effectively made the Archduke's wife and children his private family but not members of the Imperial Family.
However, for example in monarchies using agnatic seniority, the position of Heir Apparent goes to each of the monarch's sons in turn (contrary to the primogeniture system explained above), and only after all of them, to the next generation.
In practice, most (even all) monarchies applying a sort of seniority succession, blend it with semi-electiveness (at least, the incumbent monarch confirms who will be the next heir), thus it is not at all totally certain from genealogy to whom the throne will go.
