The history of Bhutan begins around 2000 BC when the Monpa migrated from Tibet. However, the first official recordings date back the the 7th century, with the arrival of Padmasambhava Guru Rinpoche, known as the second Buddha. He braught Buddhism to the kingdom and is deeply revered all over the country.
Throughout the years he established several monasteries. The system of creating and building dzongs was continued by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal. This Tibetan lama arrived in Bhutan in 1616 CE, introducing the still current dual system of secular and religious government. It is graced to Shabdrung that Bhutan was unified. After Shabdrung’s demise, for two centuries Bhutan was characterized by feuding regions with frequent civil wars. It was then when the regional penlops (governors) got more and more powerful. It was only in 1907 the country became more stable. Bhutan’s chiefs and principal lamas unanimously choose Ugyen Wangchuck as Bhutan’s first king. Like Namgyal in his times, it was Wangchuck who again unified the country. This is the starting point of the Wangchuck dynasty, still consisting nowadays.
