Description:English translation (by Sara Mike Tu Aung) Long ago, there were a king and a queen, the king and queen only had a daughter. The king and queen loved their only child so much that she was spoiled to the point that she did not listened to her parents. Eventually, she did not attend school and she grew up uneducated. They lived on like that until the king was in old age and the princess was already a young adult. One day the king became ill. The king ordered the queen by saying, "my queen, when I am gone, our daughter will be the queen, but she is still too young for that, and in addition, she is still inexperienced. Therefore, give the crown to her younger cousins first, when our daughter is ready, then you make her queen. After giving this instruction, he became very ill and he died. When the king died, the princess was already grown up as an adult. Because she wasn't crowned, she captured all her uncles from her father and mother side, and all her educated relatives. She put them all in underground prison and killed them all. After killing them, she made herself the queen. Having made her self a queen, there was a need for her to have a husband as a queen. Then, one day she made an announcment to her whole country that she was going to choose a man to be her husband. When she announced that all men from the country came to her invitation. When they all gathered together, she threw a bouquet toward her potential husbands saying, "anyone who gets this flower bouquet shall be my husband". And she threw the flower bouquet. There was a man in the crowd who got the flower bouquet. And he was to be her husband. The man who got the bouquet was an uneducated man. He was illeterate. She got married to him and made him the king. But the husband could not do anything. She did not listen to anyone. She did not listen to wise people from the palace when they told her to do this way or that way. She even killed her relatives without letting her husband knew about it. Even though her husband was the king, he could not do anything. She did everything by herself. The king was very upset and unhappy, thus, one day he left the palace and went around to other villages. In doing so, he was in an affair and got a concubine. As soon as the queen heard that news, she captured her husband and tortured him to death. After killing her husband she lived on like that. One day there were invaders to sieze her country. When invaders arrived, the princess' mother and council were having a meeting to discuss what to do saying, "If we attack now, we cannot win because we are outnumbered. They have more men so we cannot win this battle." While they were discussion what to do next, the invaders asked, "Do you surrender or not?' Do you want to fight or not?'. The Princess was very angry and she shouted, "We will fight!" "We will fight and if we lose, you can take our country." She said that because of her anger. But her subjects started to fight without even waiting decision from the Princess' mother and the council. Finally, they lost the battle. After losing the battle, the invaders took them peacefully without even tying their hands. They took the old queen, too. And finally, they all died in a strange land, in other country. The back door through which they were taken is closed until today. And the door is there until today.
