  1. I know this monarch is adored and respected like a god by thai people. When I was in Thailand few years ago, I was told that the actual royal leader was one of his daughters, because the crown son is not prepared enough and people don’ t love him. We the Spanish, before the Scandal of our King Juan Carlos’ elephant hunting in África while his country was in a hard crisis, used to respect him, but the Monarchy has fallen into Corruption with a close relative of the Crown related with dark and fake bussiness. It seems that our new king Felipe VI is more serious and right, and the Queen is young and cute and they need to recover the confidence of the spanish people, but the damage on the Royal Institution is done.

    1. I think that the problem with King Bhumibol is that he killed his older brother with a gun. Siamese people are not allow to talk about the killing. I also think that because of this killing, it it is to be his family bad Kama, his son is a terrible person, have no kindness in him

      1. The old King Juan Carlos I of Spain also killed his brother when he was young with a gun. It was a terrible accident. Juan Carlos, as a king, has brought lights and shadows to his kingdom. Dark bussinness, maybe some corruption, many lovers etc… He helped to bring democracy to Spain, a limited and soft democracy instead, and he left the crown when the scandal of an elephant hunting in Africa was known in my country. His son Felipe VI is the king now. He is respected by the spanish people, but we think that the Monarchy is useless nowadays in Spain. We don´t need kings anymore. We are surrounded by european republics, except Britain and Escandinavian countries+Belgium. But Southern Europe have not monarchies at all. Monarchy had the function to get the country united and together. But It hasn´t the power to get it now. Felipe VI seems a good person but his figure is innutile.

      2. That’s only rumor ,not truth,.. only those who read enough Thai history in both languages back to World War One would understand what really happened..

  2. In modern history there must be no place & space for anyone to rise merely on the bases of inheritance. Talent, skills, and capabilities to contribute for well being of other fellow-beings should be standard to achieve stature.

    1. Modern Thailand died a 106 years ago, already, with King Rama V dying on October 23, 1910. It got worse ever since with the worst page of “falling back to medieval times” for Thailand having been written on June 9 1946, when King Rama VIII was shot by his own and very close brother.

      Thailand, from thereon, was pushed into oppression, suppression overshadowed by countless conspiracies, instigated and led by the NEW king, the FAKE king, who kept a tide grip on the matter to ascertain nobody will ever question anything, anyone, royal!

      Kowtowing was reinstated and harsh lèse-majesté laws introduced to help him achieve his goal. Where he failed, though, was to reincarnate the absolute monarchy.

      Nevertheless, with his longer arm, Thailand’s most notorious killer – his royal army seizing power before his departure, and his corrupt, shameless and cold blooded murderer son Vajiralongkorn well in place, his wish may still be granted after his death.

      Unless, Thai people get to come to their senses and bring an end to this ruthless, brutal and unforgiving ruling of their “bethreatening” king Rama IX and completely extirpate this Thai royal pest.
