Who takes command when two (or more) commanders have the same seniority?

I've always wondered about this, especially in BOR where you often get two consuls of "4" seniority. Is there a way to ensure one leads over the other?

I've found no way. In addition, I have a suspicion that in the situation you described, the event "commander X issued conflicting orders" becomes more common. If it even happens in any other situations, I haven't always checked what the commander situation was like when I've suffered from the event.

I've found messing around with the combining/recombining sometimes changes who's in command. But it didn't seem reliable.

When two leaders have the same seniority (with the same rank), each leader has 50% possibility to command during the battle. You can't know before the battle who is the leader in command (Historicaly during the campaigns, each consul were in command during one day, and one turn in BOR is a month !)

Only the Gods could know...

But it's more important than just the battle. For instance, if a leader has a cohesion bonus then it matters who's commanding during the turn.

Or who's activated and who's not.
