THAILAND ~Royal Family ~

...Nice postcard showing the Royal Family... for many Thais the king is the most beloved person of the kingdom...there is a lot of  respect to the Royal family that have helped and rule the kingdom for hundreds of years...with matching stamps all issued at one of the Kings Anniversaries...Thanks Jobbo!!ツ

Protector of Buddhist faith in Thailand, this royal family has witnessed nine kings, ever from its inception. This family is considered as a strong pillar for the prosperity of Thailand.

Born on the 5th of December in the year 1927, King Rama IX of Thailand has reigned since the 9th of June in 1946. His titular name, Rama IX, stems from the fact that he is the ninth king of the dynasty of Chakri. He is the longest serving among all the current heads of states in the world, the longest reigning monarch in Thailand's history, and also the 10th longest reigning monarch of all time in the world.
