Notes
Content: No. 33. Myaukpet Shinmá Nat. She was the wife of Minyé Théngáthú, the keeper of the king's golden umbrella. She died in childbirth near Sagaing, on her way to visit her parents, and her child, a boy, was taken to his father at Tonghoo, and became King Mingaung on the death of King Tabin Shwédí. On his own death he, too, became a Nat. This Nat is represented as a young girl, but also as an old woman, kneeling in Court dress on a lotus throne, or on a lotus on a throne. [p.64-65] No. 34. Anauk Míbayá Nat, the Northern Queen. She was the mother of the Nats, Min Síthú and Min Kyawzwá. She was frightened to death on meeting Min Kyawzwá, after he had become a Nat, on a pony, while amusing herself in a cotton field near Ava. Another legend says she was the wife of Mingaung-gyí, son of Mingyízwa. This Nat is represented as a young woman in Court costume, sitting or kneeling on a lotus throne and suckling an infant. [p.59]
