The Anglo Saxons actually had a council for monarchy picking (Destiny)

It often wasn't patrilineal.

The Britons, we're unsure. They probably went patrilineal. Each kingdom could have done its own thing, but many accounts put Arthur at Bath, which is in an area we're not sure who ruled. Possibly Dumnonia, but their kings are accounted for, and they appear to be patrilineal.

Where the Anglo-Saxons probably would have taken Arthur as king with signs like that, the Celts maybe wouldn't have. That said, his first appearances are as a leader of battles, not King. And he probably didn't exist.
