Meng-yang Pacification Superintendency

Original Name: 
Chinese Name: 

A polity which the MSL records as a "prefecture" and later as a "pacification Superintendency" under Yun-nan. It is the polity known in Shan as Möng Yang or Möng Kawng and in Burmese as Mo-hnyin or Mogaung. The MSL notes that it was established on territory originally under Lu-chuan (Ying-zong shi-lu, juan 24.2b-3a), and it was to here that the remnants of the Möng Mao ruling family fled after the destruction of Lu-chuan (q.v.). The Du-shi Fang-yu Ji-yao notes its territory extending "east to the Jin-sha River [Irrawaddy], south to the territory of the Ava-Burma Pacification Superintendency, west to the territory of the Da Gu-la Pacification Superintendency and north to the territory of the Gan-yai Pacification Commission" (Gong Yin 1985; 202). For Tai and Burmese accounts, see Scott and Hardiman (1900; 332-338, 345-49), Mangrai (1981) and Phayre (1967).

For information on further Chinese sources relating to this polity, see Dao Yong-ming (1989; 338-62, 235-36), Fang Guo-yu (1987; 990-92) and Gong Yin (1985; 200-02 and 1992; 620-22).
