In 1946 the King of Thailand, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, came to the throne. He is now the longest reigning monarch in the world.He is loved and respected by his people.In a world where few monarchies survive, Thailand is both unusual and fortunate. Fortunate because of having a King who has both far-reaching knowledge and generous compassion: and unusual because throughout each year of his reign, he has become more deeply loved and respected by his subjects. Today, after having reigned for more than half a century, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej is known and admired far beyond the borders of his own country.He was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts on December 5, 1927. He married Queen Sirikit on April 28, 1950.
