Little Known Fact

This is a vintage portrait of the present-day Thai king and queen; I purchased it several years ago in Bangkok.  A little known fact:  The king was born in Cambridge, MA (USA) in 1927.  On a trip to Boston Kade and I discovered a square named for the king,  But apparently there are numerous spots in the Boston area that are recognized for their connection to him. To discover these places and delve into the history of the king's birth in the United States, click here.

To see a portrait of the nine Chakri Dynasty kings who have reigned over Siam/Thailand, go here.

UPDATE - October 13, 2016

Several years ago I took this image of a portrait of the nine monarchs of the Chakri Dynasty.  
Rama IX is on the far right, of course.
