Thailand History

Thailand is a constitutional monarchy with King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the ninth king of the House of Chakri, as the ruling monarch. The King has reigned for more than half a century, making him the longest reigning Thai monarch. The King is recognized as the Head of State, the Head of the Armed Forces, the Upholder of the Buddhist religion, and Defender of the Faith. Thailand is the only country in Southeast Asia that has never been ruled by a European power. However, during the Second World War, and while claiming neutrality, Thailand was occupied by the armed forces of the Empire of Japan who built the infamous 'Death Railway' using captured Allied Prisoners of War and slave Asian labourers.

The country's official name was Siam until June 23, 1939, when it was changed to Thailand. It was renamed Siam from 1945 to May 11, 1949, after which it was again renamed Thailand. Also spelled Siem, Sym or Syma, it has been identified with the Sanskrit yma, dark or brown. But the names Shan and A-hom seem to be variants of the same word, and yma is possibly not its origin but a learned and artificial distortion.

The word Thai is not, as commonly believed, derived from the word Tai meaning free"" in the Thai language; it is, however, the name of an ethnic group from the central plains. A famous Thai scholar argued that Tai simply means ""people"" or ""human being"" since his investigation shows that in some rural areas the word ""Tai"" was used instead of the usual Thai word ""khon"" for people. The phrase ""Land of the free"" is derived from the fact that the Thai are proud of the fact that Thailand is the only country in Southeast Asia never colonized by Europe."

Ratcha Anachak Thai means Kingdom of Thailand"" or ""Kingdom of Thai."" Etymologically, its components are: -Ratcha- ; -ana- -chak."
