Description
  • Abstract

    The history of the relationship between Laos and Thailand is full of vicissitudes and conflicts. One of the most well-known episodes is the struggle of Chao Anuvong, King of Vientiane, against the Siamese suzerainty in the nineteenth century. The present article examines this crucial period of Lao-Thai history and puts it into the broader context of the historical relation between these two peoples. Moreover, the role of Chao Anuvong in current discourses of memory and history will be discussed.
