|King Bayinnaung (1516-1581).|
Among his 42 lesser queens, one was mentioned in a more recent Burmese chronicle [Mahayazawinthit; written in the late 18th century]. It said that she was the elder sister of the king of Ayutthaya and that her name was Amyo Yonge. She bore King Bayinnaung one daughter."

When I first came to Thailand in 1984-85 almost every Thai I ran into asked me of King Bu-yin-naung once they knew I am a Burmese or Pha-ma as Thais call us Burmese. And I was pleasantly amazed that Thais know very well our famous king Ba-yin-naung.
