    There was some scuttlebutt that he had been caught with his hand in the till of U.S. secret budgets in the 60s and was indicted, but I have no knowledge of that.

    One snippet I noticed on the internet:

    One officer, Willis H Bird, was destroyed professionally and financially by these accusations, but Donovan, then US Ambassador to Thailand, brought Bird back to Thailand where he became successful both in finance and assisting the Thai government establish a highly effective intelligence service.

    The portrait of King Rama V with Supreme Queen Consort Sripacharintra and their sons.

    Memory Lane (In my own language)-a02-02-jpg


    This portrait was drawn using the prototype photo shown below (computer colored version). If you notice, you will see some differences between those two pictures.

    Memory Lane (In my own language)-a02-01-jpg


    Two grown sons shown in the prototype photo were different people from those shown in the portrait.

    Two grown sons shown in the prototype photo were the King’s sons all right but they were not born from the Supreme Queen Consort while two grown sons shown in the portrait were those born from her (i.e. the future King Rama VI and Prince Chakrapong Phuwanat).

    The reason; when King Rama V had an idea of his family with his Supreme Queen Consort captured in a portrait. Those two young Princes were absent from Siam. They were studying abroad. So, he ordered other of his sons to temporarily take their places in the prototype photo and the amendment would be fixed later.

    More trivia about this portrait; originally the rest three boys who were still very young were wearing top-knotted hairdo (traditional hair style for boys in the old period). After the prototype photo was sent to Florence, Italy, the painter, Edouard Gelli, saw it and refused to make a portrait of it claiming that those three boys had weird hairdo which he had never seen before in his life.

    So, the King had to arrange a new prototype photo by having those three boys change into a new look, with sailor outfits. Those sailor hats were covering their top-knots.

    The portrait was done and delivered back to Bangkok 2 years later.

    It is now hanging at
    Chakri Maha Prasat Throne Hall inside the Grand Palace.

    After King Rama V died and the funeral had passed, his son, King Rama VI (Prince Wachirawut) succeeded his father’s throne. Seeing his mother, the (then) Supreme Queen Consort Sripatcharintra becoming old and frail, he suggested her a new home at Payatai Palace (the now, Pramongkutklao Hospital) of which the environment especially the weather was better.

    Upon moving things, all of her sons were gathered which was a rare opportunity for at that time each had already grown up and had his own business to attend to, might it be duty or studying. So, the King found it a good opportunity to take a group photo (29th March 1910).

    Siwilailak, Princess of Supanburi (1868 – 1904), was a daughter of King Rama V with one of his Royal Concubines who was a commoner (who was born of a high ranking noble father). She was born while her father was still the heir-apparent for King Rama IV.

    Memory Lane (In my own language)-05-01-jpg


    She was born outside the Grand Palace because according to an ancient tradition stated that a mother was not allowed to give birth inside the Palace until the prince succeeded to the throne. The privilege of birth within the Grand Palace was reserved for children of the king only.

    So, her father, Prince Chulalongkorn (the future King Rama V) prepared a garden house near the Grand Palace for her mother to reside in.

    When her mother was pregnant for seven months, she gave birth prematurely. The child came out still in the amniotic sac. The doctor understood that the royal child died so he put the sac in a tight lidded pot and prepared to sink it in the river according to the ancient tradition.

    But before the procession was being done, the child’s grandfather, the high ranking noble from the 'Bunnag clan', wanted to know the gender of the baby being a prince or a princess. So he broke the pot and ripped the sac out and found that the child was a female thus, a princess, but what surprised everyone the most was that baby was still breathing.

    Her destiny continued back on the road.

    When her grandfather, King Rama IV died, her father succeeded to the throne as King Rama V, the little princess, later, was granted the very high ranking royal title because her father had great trust in her and referred to her as My greatest-trusted lovely daughter.

    Memory Lane (In my own language)-05-02-jpg


    Since she was the eldest child (well, actually the second for the eldest one who was also a daughter, the King was not so fond of), the King assigned her to take care of her half-siblings, especially the young princesses.

    According to (ancient) royal tradition any young princesses who were approaching adulthood could not enter adulthood unless they were officially announced by a person whom the King gave his trust for the announcement and that person was this Princess Siwilailak. This job was considered the most important job for female royalty assigned by the King.

    On the day that she was granted higher royal title, as being beloved by her younger half-siblings, they helped to make her a diamond necklace, and gave it to her on this special occasion.

    Princess Siwilailak suffered from a chronic disease and died on 26 October 1904, at age 36.

    After she died in her residence in the area of Grand Palace, King Rama V gave order to the officials to lay her body in the Throne Hall which was in the compound of the Grand Palace.

    Until 14 February 1905, her body was moved to Bang Pa-In Royal Palace in Ayutthaya by train from Samsen train station. Her father, the King, was there one day before the Princess' body arrived.

    That was the first funeral ever happened to the high ranking royal family’s to be held outside the Grand Palace.

    As her body was laid in state in the Pavilion which was constructed in the middle of a pond within the compound of the Palace, mourners thronged to pay their final respects.

    Memory Lane (In my own language)-05-03-jpg


    The three-day funeral ceremony and ritual officially started on 17 February 1905. The Royal Cremation ceremony created at Wat Nivetthammaprawat (related detail on page 5/119) sited in the area of the Palace was performed by the King and mourned by every member of the royal family.

    In the next morning, the King collected his daughter's ashes and transferred into the stupa near the temple.

    Memory Lane (In my own language)-05-04-jpg


    During the funeral ceremony, one of her half-sisters, while going to pay respect to her body at the Bang Pa-In Royal Palace, suffered from a sudden illness and died on 21 February 1905. According to the news "Move one royal daughter's body down here (Bang Pa-In Palace), and move another one royal daughter's body up there (Grand Palace)".

    Memory Lane (In my own language)-05-05-jpg


    The
    Princess Siwilailak's funeral ceremony was a talk of the town. It was the first time ever that the public could join the royal funeral. It was said to be one of the most joyful times. Everyone, may they be royalty, noble or commoner from everywhere each tried to find an opportunity to come joining this event.

    There was a saying said that "Whoever did not come to this event was considered utterly out of date".

    King Rama V’s first love, still as Prince Chulalongkorn, before taking the throne.


    Though a commoner (born in a high ranking noble family of Bunnag clan) but the Prince had always respected her even though later on, he became the King and, as royal culture, had a lot of wives later.

    This computer colored version was taken in 1924 when she was 70 years old. She died in 1943 in the reign of King Rama VIII (born in 1854).

    Note: One of their children was Princess Siwilailak, earlier post...

    Record says that from 1873 to 1910, a heraldic style coat of arms became the national emblem of Siam (renamed as Thailand in 1939).

    The Western-style, the Royal Coat of Arms of the Kingdom of Siam, was created at the command of King Rama V which was designed by a prince who was his distant nephew.

    The armorial emblem contains almost all the elements of a European coat of arms. However, all the components of the emblem are traditional Thai royal symbols.

    Memory Lane (In my own language)-crest000-jpg


    1. At the top center is the Crown of Siam

    2. Beneath the Crown is the Symbol of the Chakri Family - the Chakra (round object) and the Tri (3-pronged knife) in the middle - 1 and 2 together symbolize the Kings of the Chakri Dynasty

    3. At right and left of the Crown are 7-tier umbrellas, symbolizing absolute monarchy

    4. Beneath the Crown is a shield-like shape with 3 divides:

    The top divide has a three-headed elephant symbolizing the North, the Middle and the South of the Kingdom.
    The lower-left divide has a white elephant meaning Laos, which was a colony of Siam at the time.
    The lower-right divide has a picture of two ancient knives (krit) one straight and one bent crossing one another meaning Malay (Parid, Saiburi, Kalantan and Tranganu) also a colony of Siam at that time.

    5. At left of the shield is a "Kochasri," a half lion half elephant mystical figure holding the umbrella, symbolizing the army

    6. At right of the shield is a "Rachasri," or the lion holding the umbrella, symbolizing civil servants -

    (Symbols 5 and 6 together are the Defenders of the Kingdom)

    7. At bottom of the shield is the Necklace (called Noparatana Rajavaraporn… more detail next), worn by all kings, symbolizing the Buddhist religion, the core religion of Siam. The Necklace is made of gold, 176 cm. in length and has 36 flowered heads alternately decorated with the nine gems - diamond, ruby, emerald, yellow sapphire, garnet, blue sapphire, pearl/moonstone, zircon/topaz, and cat's eye

    8. Under the Necklace is called the Chulachomklao Necklace and Medal (more detail next) which means the Kings of the Chakri Dynasty should protect the dynasty, rule with righteousness, and bring peace and prosperity to the land and its people

    9. There are further symbols of the Crown Regalia placed at different points around the Crest

    Today the Coat of Arms is still used as the cap-badge of the Royal Thai Police and is the official symbol of the Chulachomklao Royal Military Academy. The Courts of Justice and the Supreme Court of Justice also use the Arms as its official seal.

    (to be continued)

    Continued from last article...

    The Noparatana Rajavaraporn (necklace/sash) is a part of the ancient and auspicious Order of the nine gems which dates back to the Ayutthaya era.

    The Order consisted of necklaces and sash
    . The nine-gem flowers were added during the reign of King Mongkut (Rama IV). The King traditionally wore it during the Enthronement Ceremony. There are only 27 sets made, one exclusively reserved for the Chakri Kings. The rest were bestowed on selected members of the Royal Family and senior high-ranking officials.

    (Above, King Rama IV is wearing the Noparatana as a sash, as do all kings. Below, a close up of a section)


    Memory Lane (In my own language)-crest002-jpg
    (The Chulachomklao necklace (left) and medal (right); the necklace and medal together makes the most illustrious Order of Chulachomklao which is the highest honor the king could give to whoever he chooses. The honor was introduced by King Chulachomklao (Rama V) in 1873)

    Related to page 30/742, further information:


    Memory Lane (In my own language)-10-03-06-03-jpg

    The Siamese Theater troupe’s performances opened in Russia in October 1900 were unsuccessful.

    Though they performed beautiful varied dances, such as a Fan Dance, a Lantern Dance, and an extract from a Thai dance-drama, but not many people came to the theater because of the very cold weather and plus, the very cold weather made most of the actors who were not used to this kind of weather sick.

    However the troupe had an impact on the Ballet Russes choreographer, Michel Fokine, who
    had seen the shows in St. Petersburg in 1900 then was inspired to create a solo performance a decade later called La Danse Siamoise (1910) which was performed by Vaslav Nijinsky at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg and later at the Paris Opera.

    Historians say that it was the photo, probably shot in the reign of King Rama VI, of the ruler of Nan (now a province in Thailand) which in the ancient time was a separate, autonomous kingdom with few relationships with the outside world.

    In 1558, the Burmese took control of the kingdom and deported many of the inhabitants to Burma as slaves.

    The city was deserted until northern Siam was retaken from the Burmese in 1786 (King Rama I). The local dynasty then regained local sovereignty and it remained semi-autonomous until 1931 (King Rama VII) when Nan finally accepted full Bangkok dominion.

    Part of its territory had been annexed to Laos by the French in the late-19th century.

    Think I have been to all those hotels at some time, except the Un-Un and the Station, and stayed in many of them.

    I was a resident at the King's Hotel in the mid 70s and had my Holden car stolen one night from the parking lot in the photo. I can't remember the exact year but the Australian Embassy was being built next door. The car was such a piece of shit the kamoys abandoned it after a short time and I recovered it the same day.

    I was a resident at the King's Hotel in the mid 70s and had my Holden car stolen one night from the parking lot in the photo. I can't remember the exact year but the Australian Embassy was being built next door. The car was such a piece of shit the kamoys abandoned it after a short time and I recovered it the same day.

    What a story!
