I am just another kid on the blog, trying to share my feelings with the world. i write about anything that comes to mind. Life has so much to give and too many lessons to teach. We learn, note & get inspired...NO POLITICS HERE SORRY!!!
August 21st marks the 32nd accession anniversary of Swaziland’s King Mswati III.
On August 21st 1982, at the age of only 14, King Mswati — then Prince Makhosetive Dlamini — lost his father, King Sobhuza II, who died aged 83 and the Great Council of State appointed the Prince to be the next King. Being too young to take over the throne, King Mswati was assigned an Authorised Person, who was to advise the young king until he came of age.
Before his death, King Sobhuza II had appointed one of his own close advisers, Prince Sozisa Dlamini of Swaziland, as King Mswati’s Authorised Person — a role he served until King Mswati turned 18 on April 19th 1986.
On April 25th 1986, King Mswati was crowned the new King of Swaziland and became the youngest ruling monarch in the world at the time. The same year, the King married his first wife, Sibonelo Mngometulu, with whom he had his first child, Princess Sikhanyiso Dlamini. The King can marry his fiancées only after they have fallen pregnant.
Today, the King, who is Africa’s last absolute ruler, has 15 wives (according to tradition the first two were appointed by the state) and 24 children.
