Abstract

Rama VI. (Vajiravudh), born January 1, 1881, son of the late King Rama V. (Chulalongkorn) and Queen Sowabha, succeeded to the throne on the death of his father October 23, 1910, and was crowned on December 2, 1911, being the sixth sovereign of the present reigning dynasty. On August 27, 1922, he married Princess Lakshmi, his cousin. The royal dignity is hereditary, but on November 24, 1910, it was officially announced that until the new King has male issue, the succession will pass presumptively through the line of the Queen Mother’s sons. Prince Chao Fa Asdang Tejavudh, born May 12, 1889, is, therefore, the Heir Presumptive.
