(KGT 36):  Each house is led by the eldest male direct descendent of the previous leader (there are complex traditions dealing with what happens if there is no male heir)

(ST Encyclopedia [1994] p.124):  Klingon tradition held that when a Klingon was unable to stand and face his enemies, he should choose the *Hegh'bat*.  The rite called for the eldest son of the celebrant, or a trusted friend, to deliver a ritual knife to the warrior, who would impale himself in the chest.  The son or friend would then remove the knife and wipe it on his sleeve.
