Mogaung or Möngkawng was the name and capital (royal seat) of a relatively major one of the petty Shan (ethnic Tai) principalities. It was ruled by a saopha (Burmese: sawbwa; Shan-prince of the highest rank), since that state was founded (according to legend in 58BC, under the ritual name Udiri Pale), interrupted by Chinese imperial occupations in 1479-1483 and 1495-1495 and Burmese occupations in 1651-1742 and 1771-1775 until its annexation in 1796 by the Ava-based kingdom of Burma.
