Royalty of the Kingdom of Laos

I came across this excellent book entitled "The Last Century of Lao Royalty: A Documentary History" by Grant Evans and decided to start this thread to explore more visual info and documentation on their court dress and customs.

Here is an additional video of the Royal Palace in Laos...I was awed at the beauty of all that gold seen between the 2:10 mark and the 2:17 mark!

Sheboygan Hmong New Year celebration filled with tradition | Sheboygan Press | sheboyganpress.com
One of Saturday's big events was an appearance by Prince Sauryavong Savang, a member of the Lao Royal Family, which ruled Laos before communist forces seized control in 1975.
Savang now lives in France, but was brought to the United States for the Hmong New Year in a joint effort by Hmong communities in Sheboygan and Madison, said Vang Vue, president of the Hmong Mutual Assistance Association of Sheboygan County, which sponsors the event.

I'm in Luang Prabang at the moment, a delightfully sleepy town and former capital city of the Kingdom of Lao. I visited the Royal Palace yesterday. It's quite small but has some nice features. It is still difficult to get a straight answer to questions about what happened to the King and Queen. The official line remains that they were taken from Luang Prabang to undergo re-education. After that the official trail goes cold. But it is likely the King and Queen, and the Crown Prince, died sometime in 1980 of starvation at a labour camp.

I miss the banner of Laos in the long list of banners et tout we have here on TRF>


Beautifull pics and another gruesome story which isn't all true.
The King was deposed in 1980 and his son,Prince Souvana Phouma became government advisor of the communist Pathet Lao government and he died in 1984,not in a re-education camp.You can't expect clear answers there,it is a closed society where the government rules heart & mouth and everything in between,just like in Myanmar.An Asian in these countries especially,will never show you all they know.Too dangerous to say something not in line with their "official world".

King Sisavang Vatthana was forced to abdicate in 1975 when the monarchy was abolished by the Pathet Lao. He was given the meaningless position of advisor to the president. In 1976 the King and Queen left the Royal Palace and moved to a private residence near by (I just happened to walk past it this morning). In 1977 they were placed under house arrest, and then moved to Houaphan for re-education. That's when the trail goes cold. If memory serves me right, Christopher Kremmer, in his book Bamboo Palace: Discovering the lost Dynasty of Laos, presents fairly good evidence to suggest the King and Queen, and Crown Prince, died sometime between 1978 and 1980. In 1989 the Prime Minister of Laos, Kaysone Phomvihane, on a visit to Paris, said that the King died of malaria in 1984. While there is circumstantial evidence to support the theory that the King and Queen died in a forced labour camp, there does not appear to be any evidence at all to suggest that the King was still alive as late as 1984.
