Phaungkaza Maung Maung (Burmese: ဖောင်းကားစား မောင်မောင် [pʰàʊɴɡázá màʊɴ màʊɴ]; 15 September 1763 – 11 February 1782) was the fifth king of the Konbaung Dynasty of Burma, whose reign lasted a week. Maung Maung, the eldest son of Naungdawgyi, the second king of the Konbaung Dynasty, was granted Phaungga in fief. On 5 February 1782, the 18-year-old Prince of Phaungka seized the throne while his cousin King Singu, was away on tour. His uncle Prince of Badon (later King Bodawpaya) quickly came to palace and deposed him exactly a week later, 11 February 1782. Maung Maung and his chief queen were drowned to death on the same day. He had four queens and no children.[1]
