Anaukpetlun, King

   (r. 1605-1628)
   Monarch of the Toungoo Dynasty, who succeeded in reasserting control over Upper and Lower Burma following the collapse of royal power at the end of the 16th century. In 1613, he captured Syriam (Thanlyin) and executed the Portuguese soldier of fortune Felipe de Brito, who had carved out his own kingdom in that part of the country in an alliance with a Mon prince. Anaukpetlun also waged war aggressively with Thailand (Siam), capturing Chiang Mai and turning it into a Burmese province in 1615.
