U Chit Hlaing (1879-1951), barrister and national leader, was once the towering figure in Burmese politics, attracting enormous crowds, known as the "Uncrowned King of Burma", before losing influence to a younger generation of politicians in the 1930s. This is a portrait of him taken in 1931 in London where he was attending the Burma Roundtable Conference chaired by Lord Peel.
