The present-day capital (administrative center) of Shiselweni is Nhlangano, according to the preponderance of evidence. There is also considerable evidence that the capital of Shiselweni was Hlatikulu in the 1970s. I can't find anything definite about when the change occurred.
Some versions of FIPS PUB 10-4 listed a fifth district, Praslin (code
WZ05). The 1996 draft version of ISO 3166-2 copied it
from FIPS, assigning it the code
SZ-PR. It was dropped from the 1998 official version of ISO, and from FIPS. I haven't been
able to find any other mention of Praslin as a geographical name in Swaziland. There is a Praslin Island in the Seychelles. The FIPS entry
was apparently a mistake.
