The highest award the Zulu King could give and was their equivalent of a VC and the Order of the Garter. About 8 - 9 inches , it is made from cast brass. Three kings used it - Dingaan; Panda and Cetshwayo.

Doe's anyone have a photo or a link to a photo of the Ingxotha.

The King and all those soldiers and favourites who he gave it to as a special honour wore these gauntlets.

Just a correction to the spelling, Gents. It can make a tremendous diference to the translation!
Dingaan to Dingane ("The Needy One");
Panda to Mpande ("The Root" or "The Stem");
Cetshwayo means "The Slandered One".
Regards,
Ken
