Film Zulu Dawn quote: “Excuse me, my Lord, there's something I must convey to you. I rode along the track down to Rorke's Drift. The sky above is red with fire. Your orders my Lord? Do we move to the drift?”

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.
