Rest in peace King Bhumibol Adulyadej
I read with great sadness about the passing away of Thai king Bhumibol Adulyadej. Years ago, when I studied history, I grew to love the history of Thailand. I learnt about Pya Thaksin, the great king that unified all of Thailand, with the help of his trusty lieutenant, General Chakri. When Pya Thaksin was worn out after all those wars for the unification of Thailand, General Chakri mounted the throne and started the Chakri Dynasty, taking the name of King Rama the First. King Bhumibol Adulyadej is a direct descendant of Rama the First and till he passed away, was the longest raining monarch, adored by all Thais and very much revered.
Rest in peace King Bhumibol Adulyadej. You lived a great and good life and you were the king of a beautiful country. You are not suffering anymore. Once again, rest in peace sir
