Manipur always used to be independent of its neighboring tribal areas. Though often invaded by Burma, the state usually enjoyed long and stable governments for a good time. Manipur became a part of British India following the Yandaboo treaty with the East India Company in 1826. This treaty was an agreement made at the end of the Indo-Burmese war that established the sovereignty of the British government.

During World War II, the Japanese forces marched to Manipur. It was given the status of a full-fledged state in 1972.
