Next article from Bangkok Post, the second part of "SIX AMAZING DECADES"
some interesting quotes from the article :


“Science and wisdom cannot be separated; you need to use both. Wisdom does not refer only to intellect or academic skill, but also moral intellect, or the ability to judge right from wrong, to be farsighted, and to be almost enlightened to the point of seeing into the future by the light of your wisdom. Wisdom can light your way through the use of reason. Wisdom, when used properly, lets you see the future, because you have seen the past, and its conditions. Considering the people's skills and problems, you can see what the future will hold.” MARCH 5, 1964

“I don't wish to see anybody succumb to anybody else. I am for democracy. But we must create genuine and appropriate democracy. Democracy without wisdom will turn into chaos. And that chaos will develop into anarchy ... we must respect the dignity of humans, the dignity of individuals.We should think of how to promote people's dignity.” DECEMBER 15, 1970

“Heavy development of advanced and more efficient machinery creates joblessness because people are robbed of their jobs by machines ... therefore we should think of tools and plans that are easy and practical, making the most of the energy and other resources available in our country. Such plans may not look glamorous or modern and give not as much in terms of yield, yet the produce obtained would be enough for consumption. More than that, most people will have jobs and be able to earn the decent living they wish for.” OCTOBER 18, 1975

“There are three things that can be provided by our forests: firewood, fruit and wood for building houses. People — both highlanders and lowlanders — have knowledge about these things. They've been working for generations and have done it well. They're clever and know where to grow crops and where the trees should be kept.” FEBRUARY 26, 1981

“Some people say that a royal project cannot be touched. This is a mistaken view, or a view that is not quite right. If a royal project cannot be commented on, Thailand cannot develop. A royal project is a royal opinion..” DECEMBER 4, 1993

The Queen really was a beauty when she was younger.
I'm curious... how did the King and Queen meet, and how old were they when they married?

I love HM The King more than my life

Queen Sirikit (born August 12, 1932), is the wife and Queen Consort of Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX), King of Thailand. Her formal name and title is Somdej Phra Nangchao Sirikit Phra Boromarajininat (Her Majesty Queen Sirikit)

HM The Queen Born as Mom Rajawongse Sirikit Kitiyakara, she was the first daughter of Colonel Mom Chao Nakkhatra Mangkala Kitiyakara (who was given the title Prince Chanthaburi Suranath after the royal marriage), a relative and close supporter of the Royal Family, and of Mom Luang Bua Kitiyakara (nee Mom Luang Bua Snidwongse). The title "Mom Rajawongse" indicates that she is a child of a Mom Chao (the most junior class of Thai princes) and thus descended from royalty. Her name, auspiciously granted by King Prajadhipok, means "the illustrious member of Kitiyakara".

Sirikit was born at the house of General Chao Phraya Wongsanuprapat (Mom Rajawongse Staan Snidwongse), her maternal grandfather, in Bangkok and was educated at Saint Francis Xavier, a Catholic convent school. During her childhood her father was successively Thai Ambassador to France, Denmark and the United Kingdom, and Sirikit continued her education in these countries and in Switzerland.

While studying in Switzerland Sirikit met Bhumibol Adulyadej, who although King was then still a minor and also studying in Switzerland. When the King was injured in a motor accident and was in a hospital at Lausanne, Sirikit was a frequent visitor. On July 19, 1949, they were engaged in Lausanne. On March 1950, the King returned to Thailand to take up his royal duties. Sirikit accompanied him and on April 28 the royal wedding took place at Pathumwan Palace.

When the King undertook a period of service as a Buddhist monk in 1956 (as is customary for all Thai Buddhist males), Sirikit became Regent. She performed her duties so satisfactorily that she was made "Somdej Phra Boromarajininat" (Queen Regent) and given the style of "Somdej Phra Nangchao Sirikit Phra Boromarajininat".

Although the marriage was dynastic, it has proved highly successful. The couple have four children

(Formerly HRH) Princess Ubol Ratana, born April 5, 1951 in Lausanne, Switzerland;
HRH Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn, born July 28, 1952;
HRH Crown Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, born April 2, 1955;
HRH Princess Chulabhorn Walailak, born July 4, 1957.

His Majesty's guidance over development has led millions of rural farmers out of debts and poverty.

Automobiles and toys of the Royal Family

I am seeking information about a Cadillac automobile that was delivered in 1930 to the grandfather (I believe) of current Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn. About 5 years ago, that car was was being cleaned up in Brussels, Belgium, before being returned to Bangkok for the fuller enjoyment of its present, royal owner. My question is this: can someone supply me with a photo of the car (as it looks today) for the "Cadillac Database" which inludes a roster of survivors of these truly superb, sixteen-cylinder automobiles [www.car-nection.com/yann/Dbas_txt/V6srv30.htm]. The attached factory photo is from the "Cadillac Database" (©1930, Cadillac Motor Car Division, General Motors).

In addition, I seek information about an electric toy automobile gifted by King Rama IV to his great-grandson, Prince Chula Chakrabongse when he was 4 years old. That wonderful toy too is mentioned in my "Cadillac Database": [www.car-nection.com/yann/Dbas_txt/photoy02.htm]. It was restored in the mid-seventies, on behalf of the Thai royal family, by Mr. David Weguelin, CEO of PROJX, The Tabletop Production Company, Ltd. of Piccadilly, London. In the photo [below] are Geoffrey and Mona, children of the toy's maker, Frederick S. Bennett, who was the Cadillac automobile dealer in London (Photo ©1912, Robert C. Maidment and Cadillac&LaSalle Club, Inc.)

Hi - I've just joined this forum. I'm a British man living in Thailand since 2002. I'm currently following a Master's degree in Thai Studies at Chulalongkorn University.

One of my lesser projects concerns vintage photos of King Chulalongkorn, especially the well-known photos that are often found in houses in Thailand. I do have 'copies' of many of them, but I'm missing a copy of the photo which shows HM relaxing in a chair by a river or lake, and smoking a 'cheroot'. It's a well-known photo and I've seen it in many houses, but now that I actually want a copy of this photo I cannot find one!

Can anyone help?

Thanks - Simon

Thank you for opening this thread.

I enjoyed a great deal watching these old photos, and how Thai people loves His Majesty Bhumibol and Queen Sirikit. They are these kind of "old fashioned" Monarchs I always liked. I think that people should learn a lot about Asian Monarchies.

The photos are amazing, and I hope there will be more.

Oh, by the way...I LOVE the "Royal Dog"! He was adorable!

Vanesa.
