Notes 

Kag la bong (Geluofeng in Chinese sources) was the son of Myva la kag and ruled the kingdom of Nanzhao from 748 to 779 (Backus 1981 p. 58, 69-85). 

According to the inscription of the De hua (or Tai He) stele, Kag la bong received the title of zanpu zhong in 752, while his son was given the turquoise insignia (see Chavannes 1901 p. 43).

For a French translation of the Chinese inscription on the De hua stele (dated from 766), see Chavannes 1901. See also Uebach 2003 (p. 54-59) for a study on the Tibetan names mentioned on the inscription.
