Thazin Saw U
Mwei Daw was the youngest daughter of Than-Bon, a senior minister at the court of King Binnya U. Than-Bon was a son of Senior Minister Bo Htu-Hpyet who served at the court of King Wareru. In 1348/49, soon after the accession of Binnya U, she was married to Gov. Min Linka of Pegu, younger half-brother of Binnya U. Her three elder sisters Mwei It, Mwei Kaw and Mwei Zeik became principal queens of Binnya U. She and Linka had two daughters—Thazin Saw Dala and Thazin Saw U—and a son, Nyi Kan-Kaung.
C. 1353,[note 1] her husband revolted against Binnya U. But the rebellion failed. Min Linka was arrested, and executed. Binnya U raised his sister-in-law to queen with the title of Thiri Maya Dewi. In 1368, she bore him a son named A-Pa-Thon but died soon after the birth in Donwun. The son later became King Razadarit.
- (Pan Hla 2005: 47–48): Min Linka's rebellion took place sometime after the invasion by Chiang Mai in 713 ME (1351/52) and before the death of the prized white elephant in 716 ME (1354/55).
