The city was founded by King Mangrai in 1262

and became the capital of the Mangrai Dynasty.

Subsequently, the city was conquered by Burma

and remained under Burmese rule for several hundred years.

It was not until 1786 that this city became a Chiang Mai vassal.

Siam (Thailand) annexed Chiang Mai in 1899, and Chiang Rai

was proclaimed a province of Thailand in 1933.
