Born Prince Misuzulu Sinqobile Zulu, he is the eldest son of late King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu with great wife late Queen Mantfombi Dlamini Zulu who was born a princess of Eswatini. He succeeded his late father King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu as king of Zulu kingdom, South Africa after his late mother who was then regent named him as her sucessor.

He is married to Queen Ntokozo Mayisela Zulu with whom they have two children. The King has an adult son Prince Jubizizweni Zulu Sigcau from a previous relationship with Princess Wezizwe Mpondombini Sigcau of amaMpondo aseQaukeni kingdom.

The great royal wife tradition is followed by many south African royal houses whereby a royal wife is married for the king by the Kingdom by paying bride price for her. Therefore her sons become high chance heirs to the throne than other sons.

  • Princess Ntandoyesizwe Zulu
  • Princess Nomkhosi Zulu
  • Prince Bambindlovu Zulu
