Hi Ray63.
Not sure the zulu army had a most senior regiment by rank , but it's widely accepted that the iNgobamakhosi was Cetswayo's favourite , as he either formed it or was a member .
Cheers 90th. Salute

Many of the regiments were based on age (uVe for example being youth) and whether or not a man was married. The regiments with the older, married men would obviously have had a higher status. Marriage was an important institution in Zulu culture in becoming a man.
