He was largely responsible for restoring the Burmese kingdom after it had collapsed at the end of the 16th century and completed the reunification efforts begun by his father; having inherited primarily only Upper Burma and the Shan States, he pr oceeded to conquer Lanna in the east, Lower Burma in the south, from rival Burmese factions and the Portuguese, as well as the Upper Tenasserim from the Siamese; he decided to make Pegu the capital of his dominions in 1617, so he crowned himsel f as the King of Pegu in that year.
