One of SotS weaknesses is its protracted end game. So to steal am idea from Age of Empires (2 I think) , it's a free for all with all the conspiracy and alliances you like but only one can be left standing.

Oh, and the main zinger is this, you elect one unit your monarch, they die and you are out instantly. I tend to dial down random events without quite expunging them.

Thankfully SotS naming system would help clear up any ambiguity.
