Burmese
Perched on the southeast portion of Asia, Myanmar, earlier known as Burma, is the largest country in Southeast Asia. The country forwards a vast topography and has something for all kinds of traveller. Interestingly, Myanmar, though independent since 1948, relieved itself from the military dictatorship only in 2011 when the military junta was official dissolved in the country. Despite a civilian government being in power, military still wields a greater control on this country. This promptly explains the presence of a large number of famous and influential military people, who have significantly contributed towards growth and development of their country through their personal endeavours, being in the list of famous Burmese. Some were even famous for their notoriety and infamy like military dictator, U Ne Win. King Alaungpaya was one of three greatest monarchs of Burma, alongside Anawrahta and Bayinnaung. Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi was a prominent Burmese activist who fought against the cruelties of U Ne Win and initiated a nonviolent movement towards achieving democracy and human rights.
