Third Anglo-Burmese War

The Third Anglo-Burmese War, also known as the Third Burmese War, was a conflict that took place mainly during the winter of 1885, with sporadic resistance and insurgency continuing into 1887. It was the final of three wars fought in the 19th century between Burmese and British forces. The war saw the the loss of sovereignty of an independent Burma under the Konbaung Dynasty, whose rule had already been reduced to the territory known as Upper Burma previously. The Lower Burma region had been annexed by the British Empire in 1853, as a result of the Second Anglo-Burmese War.
Following the war, Burma would become part of the British Raj as a province of British India. From 1937, British rule in Burma would be altered as Burma became a separate colony under British rule. Burma would eventually achieve independence as a republic in 1948.
