(King Rama V) of Siam



Date / Place


17 th of May 1997, Bern, Switzerland



One hundred years ago, when Siam was being threatened by the Western colonial powers, His Majesty King Rama V of Siam (King Chulalongkorn) embarked on a trip to Europe to visit 14 countries as official guest of their leaders and monarchs. The 8 month long journey ( 7 th of April - 17 th of December 1897 ), the first ever visit to the western world of a Thai Monarch, ws ostensibly a manifestation of King Chulalongkorn's vision for natural development and diplomacy. The trip had consequently contributed in no small measures to the modernistion of Siam and to the maintenanceof the country's sovereignty and independance.

On 17 th - 31 st of May 1897, H.M. King Chulalongkorn visited Switzerland where he was warmly received by its leaders and people. The welcoming ceremony in Bern was particularly spectacular as thousands of people lined the streets to greet the Royal procession. All through the 15 days in Switzerland the King's activities were closely followed by the curious local press. A Swiss journal 'La patrie Suisse' described H.M. King Chulalongkorn as 'un monarque intelligent, généreux et liberal' who had a mild manner with an elegant look and a firm steady stride.
