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.

Swaziland is divided into four regions.
See the Constituencies of Swaziland page.
Swaziland is divided into four regions, which are subdivided into 55 tinkhundla (constituencies; singular, inkhundla), which are further subdivided into 360 imiphakatsi.
The UN LOCODE page for Swaziland lists locations in the country, some of them with their latitudes and longitudes, some with their ISO 3166-2 codes for their subdivisions. This information can be put together to approximate the territorial extent of subdivisions.
At the time of the 1946 census, Swaziland was divided into six districts.
