Perhaps they have a long or an ancient tradition of representative government that the nobles were recreating. As if Europeans still had a clear idea and reminiscence of the Roman Senate and they were consciously bulding from that. I am sure that the Kemrese form of government and its Senate come about through a long standing tradition of Romanity and always having had a Senate.
