His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej Rama IX Of The Chakri Dynasty


King was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States of America, on 5 December 1927, younger son of Their Royal Highnesses Prince Mahidol of Songkla and the Princess Mother (formerly Miss Sangwal Talapat), and is the direct grandson of His Majesty King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) and Queen Savang.  His Majesty the King has one older sister, Her Royal Highness Princess Galayani Vadhana of Naradhivas, and one older brother, His Majesty the late King Ananda Mahidol (Rama VIII).  His Majesty became King of the Kingdom on Thailand on 9 June 1946.  The Coronation Ceremony came later in 1950, after His Majesty has finalized his education in Switzerland, where he met the aristocratic Mom Rajawongse Sirikit Kitiyakara, who has since become HM Queen Sirikit.

During that time, Siam has become Thailand, and was still unstable since the change from Absolute Monarchy to Constitutional Monarchy in 1932. The King came to the Throne after his brother’s death, and was careful not to offend the military government. Since the change to Constitutional Monarchy, the people of Thailand was still in need of a King who can guide the country into prosperity. The Thai Kingship was seen as a pillar for the Thai people. 60 years on, many can still remember His Majesty’s Oath of Succession to the Throne :

We will reign with righteousness for the benefit and happiness of the Siamese people.

And what the King has said, has been done, and continues to do.
