To everyone claimig dudebro Zaraki was talkig to in that flashback with the voice of his sword, that face was the 10th Kenpachi (he's seen in the databook). That was probably when Zaraki became the new 11th division captain.
So Zaraki killed this Kenpachi in a one on one fight to become to new 11th division captain and also the new "Kenpachi".
Gosuke Kiganjō was the previous Kenpachi...who served alongside Love and the Visoreds/Captain over a century ago. Confused though because wasn't Unohana still Kenpachi then? Who could of beat her? Also when Urahara was being sworn into Captain-hood Gosuke Kiganjō was missing at that time. Gosuke Kiganjō then loses to Zaraki in front of 200 members. He was belittled as being lazy and piggish. Which is in return funny due to the Bount Arc.
Maki Ichinose mentioned Kiganjō as a man who believed in justice much like himself. Maki was deeply attached to Kiganjō. (LOL)
Back to my original thought though...
Timeline doesn't make much sense...considering Unohana has been Kenpachi I thought from recent flashbacks since Zaraki was a child.
8. Unohana ,(possibly? How did she lose or when did she relinquish her title as Kenpachi?)
9. Some dude
10. Gosuke Kiganjō
