Great Britain conquered Burma over a period of 62 years (1824 A.D.-1886 A.D.) and incorporated it into its Indian Empire. Burma was administered as a province of India until 1937 A.D. when it became a separate, self-governing colony; independence from the Commonwealth was attained in 1948 A.D.. Gen. Ne Win dominated the government from 1962 A.D. to 1988 A.D., first as military ruler, then as self-appointed president, and later as political kingpin. Despite multiparty legislative elections in 1990 A.D. that resulted in the main opposition party - the National League for Democracy (NLD) - winning a landslide victory, the ruling junta refused to hand over power. Burma is now officially the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, commonly shortened to Myanmar. The primary language is Burmese.
