Part fact, part fiction, part myth, and part legend, this book brings to life the kingdom of Ayutthaya from its roots in the kingdom of Sukhothai to its eventual destruction by the Burmese in 1767. It is the turbulent story of both the kings and their kingdom, from its birth to its downfall.

Robert Smith retells this history by reimagining and dramatizing the exploits of Ayutthaya's rulers, building his account around a framework of documentary evidence and hints in the historical record. Intrigues and deception wind through the tale as do ingenuity, honor, and the will to greatness that made Ayutthaya a major regional power for centuries. This account of the development of a nation-and the stories behind it-shows how the old kingdom of Ayutthaya was a crucial precursor to the foundation of modern-day Thailand.
