1688 Revolution in Siam


This book describes the 1688 revolution which ended the first European attempts to penetrate the kingdom. King Narai of Siam, a sick man even before the outbreak, died two months later a prisoner in this own palace at Lopburi—displaced but nominally “King”. The revolution was followed by the reversal of an unpopular foreign policy—dependence upon France, and at the same time, a severe rebuff was administered to King Louis XIV’s advisers who aspired to subvert the national religion in Siam by attempting to convert the King to Roman Catholicism.
