What Book of Mormon politician lost the election, but his followers made him king anyway?


Amlici

And thus they did assemble themselves together to cast in their voices concerning the matter ...

And it came to pass that the voice of the people came against Amlici ... but Amlici did stir up those who were in his favor to anger against those who were not in his favor.

And it came to pass that they gathered themselves together, and did consecrate Amlici to be their king.

Now when Amlici was made king over them he commanded them that they should take up arms against their brethren; and this he did that he might subject them to him. Alma 2:6-10
