King Bhumibol was born in Cambridge in the US state of Massachusetts on 5 December 1927.
His Majesty became King of the Kingdom on Thailand on 9 June 1946. The Coronation Ceremony came later in 1950, after His Majesty has finalized his education in Switzerland.
He had reigned without interruption for over 70 years (longest reigning monarch) after acceding to the throne following the death of his brother, King Ananda Mahidol.
Through the illustrious decades of his rule, HM the King has been the very embodiment of his Oath of Accession that, “We will reign with Righteousness for the Benefit and Happiness of the Siamese People.”
King Bhumibol Adulyadej, King Rama IX of the Chakri dynasty, of Thailand has died at the age of 88.
