The following section contains a map of the administration units. In this section you will find a brief overview of the Myanmar area's past, illustrating the area with a map, which includes historic cards of former lands and kingdoms that include what is now Myanmar. During the fifth pre-Christian period, the Pyu, a Tibeto-Burman people, arrived in present-day Burma.
The Burmese, another subordiant to the Pyu, founded the Burmese pagan kingdom in 849. All the other races, the Pyu and the Mon, are moving to the northern part of the country. In 1582, these areas merge into the Kingdom of Burma under the Toungboo Dynasty, but this does not become a steady country.
Burma has been more or less a unified country under the Konbaung dynasty of King Alaungpaya since 1752. During the 19th c., the UK tried to take over Burma. By the end of the Third Wars in 1885, Britain gained full command of Burma and annexed the Burmese state in Britain.
1937 Burma becomes its own UK settlement, but the quest for freedom is very high. In 1942 Japan conquers and conquers Burma and founds the marionette state Republic of Burma from 1943 to 1945, led by Myanmar-nationists. In 1945, after the war, the Nazis joined the United Kingdom armed force to free the country.
