Ningthou was a title used for the King of Manipur. The Ningthou was used to refer to the King after the reign of Pakhangba and was a title used up until King Pamheiba. The subsequent Bengalization undertaken by Pamheiba and Shantidas Adhikari changed the title of the King to Maharaja or Raja though the native name was still used for some Kings (ex. Ningthou Ching-Thang Khomba)
