1688 Revolution in Siam by E.W. Hutchinson 550 Baht

1688: Revolution in Siam by E.W. Hutchinson
(based on the memoir by Father de Bèze)

The classic work on this important period

The 1688 revolution in Siam ended the first European attempts to penetrate the Kingdom. King Narai of Siam, a sick man even before the outbreak, died two months later a prisoner in his own palace at Lopburi - displaced but nominally still King. The revolution was followed by the reversal of an unpopular foreign policy - dependence upon France, and at the same time, a severe rebuff was administered to King Louis XIV's advisors who aspired to subvert the national religion in Siam by attempting to convert the King to Roman Catholicism.This memoir by Father de Bèze, a Jesuit priest, was discovered in 1936 in the G.E. Morrison Library in Tokyo. It was written in response to a request by the author's religious superior for information and relates vividly the events that occurred during the the upheaval which involved the court and foreign powers as well as the Greek adventurer, Constant Phaulkon.
