Alaugsithu (1090–1160). Grandson of Kyanzittha and the son of Prince Saw Yin and Princess Shwe Ein Si, Alaugsithu became the fourth king of the Bagan dynasty. Prince Alaugsithu ascended the throne in 1113 at the age of 23 and reigned for 47 years. Alaugsithu spent the early years of his reign suppressing revolts in Tenasserim and Arakan. During his reign he commissioned several pagodas, including Shwegugyi and Thabyinnyu. Alaugsithu was murdered by one of his sons, Narathu, in 1160.

Alaùngpayà (1714–1760). Also known as U Aung Zeya, he was the king and founder of the Konbaung dynasty; he reigned from 1752 to 1760. Originally a headman from the village of Moksobo in the Mu River valley, Alaùngpayà rose to prominence as a resistance leader against Mon rule. He was crowned king at Moksobo following the capture of several Mon cities in 1752. Alaùngpayà defeated the Mon following the capture of Ava in 1753 and Pegu in 1757. Following his victory over the Mon, Alaùngpayà devoted himself to the administrative and military reorganization of Burma. Alaùngpayà was mortally wounded in his last campaign against Siam in April 1760 and died returning to Burma.
