Minkhaung of Mrauk-U (Burmese: မင်းခေါင်, Burmese pronunciation: [mɪ́ɴɡàʊɴ], Arakanese pronunciation: [máɴ ɡàʊɴ]; 1477–1531) was king of Arakan from 1521 to 1531. He was a son of King Dawlya (r. 1482–1492), and succeeded his elder brother King Thazata. He ascended the throne and married his brother's chief queen, Saw Nan-Hset. He was overthrown and killed by Min Bin, then governor of Sandoway (Thandwe) in 1531.[1]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The chronicle Rakhine Razawin Thit (Sandamala Linkara Vol. 2 1999: 29) says Min Bin came to power on Saturday, 1st waxing of Nayon 893 ME, which translates to Wednesday, 17 May 1531. The correct date should be Saturday, 11th waxing of Nayon 893 ME, which translates to Saturday, 27 May 1531.
