War, and other team sports
In this approach, the Crown would be chosen as the leader of a group or team who won some collective contest.  Assuming the contest is a war, that might be between armies of just one sort of combatant or mixed, armies recruited from within a specific group or across groups.  Fighters might be selected by each Crown aspirant, or randomly assigned to armies... there are a lot of options.

Prowess in other fields
Use this board to discuss the benefits and disadvantages of  a Crown tournament based on prowess in something other than heavy combat.  Consider non-martial competitions, prowess in arts and sciences, and how such tournaments would be judged.

Success over time
In this approach, the selection of Crown is not based on winning a single Crown tournament, but through a series of events over a period of time.  The heir to the Crown might be the person who wins the most bouts during the current Crown's reign, or the person who participates in the most events in some way.  The selection criteria would still be prowess in one or more fields, but the way of measuring prowess could be very different from a single tournament.
