The royal lineage goes back a very long time

Swazi culture dates back centuries, and can be traced all the way to a chief named Dlamini I, who ruled from 1745-1780. This original chief was one of the first to migrate to the area and establish a center of power. Today, the royal family is quite large, and the current king, Mswati III, is believed to have around 200 brothers and sisters.
