More info

All Roman military degrees, above centurion or praefectus, were political offices.

Usually, they were members of the Senate or the patriciate, who followed The Course of Honour, which required every Roman aristocrat to pass through the army as part of his training as a political leader or member of the Senate.

It was difficult to become a consul if you had not had command of a legion before.

Not even a provincial governor.

This does not mean that these generals were amateurs, the fact of not being professionals like the centurions, did not imply shortcomings in strategy, tactics or leadership skills.

It is true that there were also bad generals, but that also happens in armies with a professional general.
