From the 11th century until the end of the 19th century, Burma (Myanmar) was home to a series of kingdoms that integrated the Irrawaddy Valley politically. The lasting legacy of these kingdoms was that they established political, religious, cultural, and linguistic standards and models that would prove durable and would survive the colonial period and help shape post-independence Burma from 1948.
