Minkyinyo, King

   (r. 1486-1531)
   Founder and first monarch of the Toungoo (Taungoo) Dynasty. His small state, Toungoo (Taungoo), located in the valley of the Sittang (Sittoung) River, attracted many Burman chiefs following the occupation of Ava (Inwa) by the Shans in 1527. He planned to conquer the Mon state of Hanthawaddy (modern-day Pegu [Bago]) in Lower Burma, but died in 1531; his son, Tabinshwehti, completed the task.
