The Second Unity of Burma under Taungoo Dynasty

Burmese People established Taungoo Dynasty by the late 15th century. By the mid-16th century, Taungoo was under the rule of King Tabinshwehti who reunited Myanmar. Because of the growing influence of Europe in Southeast Asia, the Kingdom of Taungoo became a major trading center. Bayinnaung expanded the empire by conquering the states of Manipur, Chiang Mai and Ayutthaya. These rebellions inside as well as the lack of resources needed to control the newly acquired area led to the fall of the Kingdom of Taungoo. Anaukpetlun, who repelled the invasion of Portugal, Taungoo Dynasty restored in 1613.
