King Alaungpaya chose Yangon as the administrative centre of the lower region of Myanmar in the 18th century, bringing about a measure of peace to the region. After Alaungpaya's death, troops led an attack against Siam, killing the King of Siam in 1776 and annexing lands for Myanmar.

The country was renamed Burma by the British when they took control in 1852 and made it a province of India. The British exploited the country's natural resources, which led to a rebellion. In addition, the British removed the monarchy and separated monks from the workings of the government. As the people had only ever known the monarchy and were staunch Buddhists, they were alienated by these actions. The immigration of Indian workers in large numbers led to even greater destabilisation during this period.

Riots between Indians and supporters of the Burmese national liberation movement broke out in 1930. Soon afterwards, elections were held, with Ba Maw elected as president. Just a decade later, the country was invaded and occupied by Japanese forces during WWII. By the time the Japanese left in 1943, the country's Minister of Defence, General Ang San, had launched his plan for an independent Burma with the support of the country's Anti-Fascist People';s Freedom League.

The British once again re-asserted control over the country following WWII, but a series of strikes led by General Ang San resulted in the British withdrawing from Burma. In 1947, the general was assassinated by right-wing politician U Saw. Civil war broke out, with the ethnic Karen minority disrupting transportation routes to the capital.

In early 1962, a military government was established by General Ne Win, leading to further revolts, this time with university students in the lead. Large numbers of students were killed by the army during the demonstrations. By the late 1980s, a movement for democracy was born as much of the country faced poverty.

Since the late 1980s, the drive for democracy has been led by General Ang San's daughter, Aung San Suu Kyi. The military junta suspended the 1978 Constitution and changed the country's name from Burma to the Union of Myanmar. In an attempt to put an end to unrest and frequent uprisings by dissidents, the junta placed Aung San Suu Kyi under house arrest in 1989.

Although the National League of Democracy (led by Aung San Suu Kyi) won the national elections held in 1990, the military dictatorship refused to turn over power, and arrested many leaders of Suu Kyi's party. The country continues to be under military rule today.
