In 1886, The last royal family of Burma or Myanmar -( Thibaw Min ), last king of Myanmar..... In 1886, British had conquered over the land of Myanmar.. Because of the Ruby and other gems's mines. Before 1886, 30% of the land was occupied under the soilders of british. They were a prisoners of British at that time. They were forced to sail to India with his family's members : two queens, 6 children :(2 princes and 2 princesses) 4 born in Myanmar and 2 born in India.

In India, after a few years, they spent all the moneys of them...so they were fired to leave the mension that they had rented from British's soilders....In India, they were not allowed to leave their house and forced some daughter to marry with Indian's labours.

Thanks again to Wikipedia for Thibaw min of The last Myanmar king's profile
Thibaw Min also Thibaw, Theebaw, or Theobaw; January 1, 1859 December 19, 1916) was the last king of Burma (Myanmar). His reign ended when Burma was defeated by the forces of the British Empire on 29 November 1885, prior to its official annexation on 1 January 1886.
Thibaw was born in Mandalay and studied briefly in a Buddhist monastery. His father King Mindon made him prince of the northern State of Thibaw (now Hsipaw), from which he took his name, and he succeeded as king on 1 October 1878 with the help of a powerful widow of his late father and other senior officials. He was married to two of his half sisters the younger of which was known to have a substantial influence on him.
At the time of his accession half of Burma had been under British occupation for thirty years. Understandably this was resented and it was no secret that the king intended to regain this territory. Relations fouled when during the early 1880s the king began making moves to move his country closer to the French. Relations deteriorated still further around 1885 in an incident called the "Great Shoe Question" where the royal court insisted that visiting British dignitaries remove their shoes before entering the palace. The British officials refused and were banished from the northern capital. Finally, in 1885 Thibaw issued a proclamation calling on all his countrymen to liberate Lower Burma from the British.

The British, using the pretext that he was a tyrant who had reneged on his treaties, decided to complete the conquest that had started in 1824. General Prendergast, with 11,000 men, a fleet of flat-bottomed boats, and elephant batteries, received orders to invade Upper Burma.
