  The Merchant of Venice and The Second Tetralogy
But while Henry is first presented as the embodiment of sophrosyne (moral balance) in the tragic component of the ritual pattern, his aspect as winter interrex in the comic pattern immediately emerges.
The status of Henry IV as seasonal interrex in the ritual drama pattern is historicized through the monarchist principle that a usurper is not a divinely anointed, and therefore legitimate, king, but his heir, having been created by divine rather than human will, resumes the interrupted divine right of the crown.
While Henry IV is not slain by his successor, the ritual performance is approximated in Hal’s taking of the crown from his supposedly dead father who accuses him of wishing him dead.

  Interrex - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Interrex or "inter-rex" (Latin; plural, interreges) was literally a ruler "between kings." He was in effect a short-term regent.
The office of Interrex is said to have been instituted on the death of Romulus, when the senate wished to share the sovereign power among themselves instead of electing a king.
Traditionally the role of interrex fell since 1572 to the Archbishop of Gniezno and Primate of Poland of the Roman Catholic Church.

Though originally and specifically confined to the sphere of sovereign authority, the term is commonly used by analogy in other connexions for any suspension of authority, during which affairs are carried on by specially appointed persons.
The term originated in Rome during the regal period when an interrex was appointed (traditionally by the senate) to carry on the government between the death of one king and the election of his successor (see Rome: History, ad init.).
It was subsequently used in Republican times of an officer appointed to hold the comitia for the election of the consuls when for some reason the retiring consuls had not done so.

 (Poland: History of its Elective Democracy)
The irregular manner in which Augustus II Wettin attained the kingship, by contesting the outcome of the election by force of arms and by overriding the Interrex, started off his administration on the wrong foot, set the public against him, and contributed to an almost complete breakdown of cooperation between the Seym and the 'Elect'.
In 1733 Interrex Theodore Potocki was able to persuade the Convocation Seym of that year to exclude all foreigners from candidacy, while "preserving all other provisions of a free election." This did not prevent Augustus III Wettin to press his claim right then.
The powers of the Interrex developed to include the right to summon the three Seyms in the royal election sequence: the Convocation Seym, the Election Seym, and the Coronation Seym, to receive and dismiss foreign ambassadors, and to make any other executive decisions that the situation demanded.

The comitia were,, as a general rule, not held by the first interrex; more usually by the second or third (Liv.
429 ; Walter, §§ 55, 131.) For this reason, as well as on account of the influence which the interrex exerted in the election of the magis­trates, we find that the tribunes of the plebs were strongly opposed to the appointment of an interrex.

The Interrex presided over the comitia curiata, which was assembled for the election of the king.
He had previously agreed with the senate upon the person who was to be proposed to the comitia as king ; for it is inconceivable that he had the absolute power of selecting whatever person he chose, as Dionysius states in some passages.

The interrex is Marcus Aemilius Lepidus, a lieutenant of Caesar’s who would become with Antony and Octavian the third member of the Second Triumvirate.
The office of interrex (literally “between kings”) arose after the death of Romulus; the interregnum, a period of five days, was the time that elapsed until another king could be elected.
During the late Republic, an interrex was selected to hold the comitia to elect the consuls when the consuls in office were unable to do so themselves.

The power of the Interrex is hard to classify.
Logically it ought to be imperium, because the constitutional duty of the Interrex is to preside over the election of the Consules, and this requires the convention of the Comitia Centuriata: only a magistrate with imperium can convene the Comitia Centuriata.
The curule magistracies (Latin magistratus curules) are those whose holders are entitled by virtue of their office to sit on the curule chair (Latin sella curulis) and whose descendants are regarded as nobiles.

 ROMA - SPQR - ROMAN EMPIRE REBORN
Whenever there is a suspension of legal authority, by vacancy of the chief magistracy, it is understood that the auspicial are lodged (in accordance with the most ancient custom) with the patrician members of the Senate until new magistrates should be inaugurated.
The renewal of the regular order of things is begun by the patrician senators coming together and appointing one of their own number as interrex.
The Interrex holds office for five days, as chief magistrate of the commonwealth and possessor of the auspicia; then he creates a successor, who might hold the comitia for the election of consuls, but who usually creates another successor for that purpose.

The term of interregnum for every office holder was limited to five days at most; apparently the senators took turns and the current office holder at the end of his term passed on the office to his successor for another five days according to the order established by lot.

The ordinary presidents of the community were bound not to remain in office longer than a year reckoned from the day of their entering on their functions;(4) and they ceased -de jure- to be magistrates upon the expiry of the year, just as the interrex on the expiry of the five days.
Through this set termination of the supreme office the practical irresponsibility of the king was lost in the case of the consul.
In fact these prerogatives were enhanced by the reform of the constitution, because the appointment of the magistrates also, which fell to be made by election of the community, was thenceforth subject to the confirmation or rejection of the patrician senate.

With both consuls dead (Marius and Carbo), an interrex (which means "a between king", a relic from the kings of Rome) was elected in late 82 to oversee the election of new consuls.
However the interrex, Lucius Valerius Flaccus, proposed an unusual law: Sulla should be dictator for life; all of his past actions were legal (including marching on Rome), and all of his future actions would be legal.
Dictators had more power than consuls (and actually had authority over consuls), but held the position for only six months.
