The Ahom kingdom (1228–1826, called Kingdom of Assam in medieval times) was a medieval kingdom in the Brahmaputra valley in Assam that maintained its sovereignty for nearly 600 years and successfully resisted Mughal expansion in North East India. It was able to establish its suzerainty over the Brahmaputra valley and had a profound effect on the political and social life in the region. The kingdom was established by en:Sukaphaa, a Tai prince from en:Mong Mao. With the defeat of the Burmese after the en:First Anglo-Burmese War and the en:Treaty of Yandaboo in 1826, control of the kingdom passed into British East India Company hands.
