We can make sure that ** former consuls may even be removed after some time to avoid cluttering the ranks... IIRC my Roman history, proconsuls were prolonged usually for 1 year, exceptionally 3, but not much more... we can tweak this easily while we test the scenario

I favor more the historical approach, if you could event-script the spawning of the elected Maximus you could have him retire, then reappear and then disappear anytime you want with turn-based events.
This all depends on the approach. Total history or player controlled...total history would mean events only. Perhaps it's not only better but also easier.

For instance, during the 2nd PW, that's for example what happened after the Scipio brothers got killed in Spain and until their young nephew arrived to take over...
