Notes
Content: No. 17. Tabìn Shwédí Nat. He was king of Tonghoo and Hantháwadí (Pegu) and son of Mín Kínyó. His Minister, Thamin Sawdók, warned him of ill-fortune and advised him to remove his residence. This he did, but, nevertheless, he was killed by his royal sword-bearer (kalut-le'wèdá-hmú), who was the younger brother of Thamin Sawdók, and became a Nat. This Nat is represented as seated on a lotus throne, in Court dress, with and without wings, with a sword in his right hand. [p.64] No. 18. Minyè Aungdin Nat, called also Minyè Aung Nat. He was the son of Anauk Thalón Mintarágyí, and died of drink.
