Ngwenyama (also Ingwenyama) is the title of the male ruler (King) of Eswatini. The Ngwenyama is the counterpart of the Ndlovukati.[1]Ingwenyama means "lion" in siSwati, but in an honorific sense, as opposed to libhubesi, the usual way of referring to actual lions.

The title is sometimes written Ingwenyama, iNgwenyama, or ingwenyama, with the prefix i- (plural ti-, tiNgwenyama), meaning "the king".

The current king is Mswati III.
