Razadarit, King

   (r. 1385-1423)
   One of Burma's most prominent Mon kings, he was an able ruler who fought protracted wars with the state of Ava (Inwa) in Upper Burma and with the Tai states of Ayuthaya and Lan Na (Chiang Mai). During his reign the royal capital of Hanthawaddy (modern-day Pegu [Bago]) was one of Southeast Asia's most prosperous port cities. Like his successors Shinsawbu and Dhammazedi, he made generous donations to the Shwe Dagon Pagoda and to the Shwemawdaw in Pegu.
