The two kings

In ancient Sparta, whilst all other Greek city-states had begun electing their officials, they stuck with their system of two kings who shared the throne and ruled at the same time.  These dual kings would work in partnership and share official duties and it is thought the nature of the arrangement was to ensure that no single man could obtain or abuse power over the affairs of state.  The fact that the Spartans are still much revered today goes to show that this was, at least, a workable affair.
