Cultural Profile: Sukhothai Kingdom, Dawn of Thailand

A brief history of the Sukhothai Kingdom, the first Thai kingdom in the country’s heartland to overthrow the Angkorian Khmer Empire for independence.

A quick glance at Thai history will tell you that the Thai city-state of Sukhothai was the “first capital of Siam” or the beginnings of the Thai country, which led in a line through Ayutthaya to the modern nation-state of Thailand. While this isn’t wholly inaccurate, the history of the Sukhothai Kingdom and its relationship to the greater realm of Thailand and Southeast Asia is much more intricate and, in all honesty, much more interesting.

My name is Ben. I’m a native Michigander with a passion for human culture and new places, and more than that, new experiences. I have degrees in writing and anthropology and have no idea what I want to do with them. For now, I’m content with an unbound lifestyle; going where I want and doing what I can, and hopefully gaining some interesting stories along the way.
