Anaukpetlun (literally 'died in the west', died 1628), grandson of Bayinnaung, was the ruler of Burma during the early 17th century who re-established the reunification of the Burmese kingdom known as the Nyaungyan Dynasty or Restored Toungoo Dynasty.

Born to Prince Nyaungyan in Upper Burma, Anaukpetlun launched an invasion of the neighbouring region of Lower Burma capturing Prome in 1607 and Toungoo in 1610. Continuing on to Syriam, under the rule of Portuguese mercenary Philip de Brito, Anaukpetlun would capture the city in 1613 following a long siege where he would crucify de Brito and enslave the surviving Portuguese and Eurasian populations (known as "bayingyi" and subsequently serving as hereditary gunners for later Burmese rulers).cite book|url=|title=Burma|author=D.G.E.

Invading nearby Siam the same year, Anaukpetlun's forces briefly occupied Tenasserim however within a year they were eventually forced to withdraw from the country by combined Portuguese and Siamese forces. Continuing to fortify his control of Burma, Anaukpetlun would eventually be murdered by his own son, who feared retribution from an affair with one of his father's concubines, in 1628. He was succeeded by his brother Thalun (1629-1648).
