Abstract

From 1802 to 1854, the Chiang Tung Wars are a series of conflicts involving many Tai principalities and the kingdom of Lan Na for the control of the upper valley of Mekong. They culminated with a vast battle between the forces of Siam, Burma and countless Tai principalities. At that time the independent Tai (Shan) principalities were still controlling a vast territory up to China. With the help of the Siamese, they had resisted many attacks from the Burmese, but in the 19 century Siamese wanted to display their power over their northern frontier and expand their territory, at the expense of the Burmese and the British, to control the trade on the upper valley of the Mekong. - GL)
