↳ suphankanlaya

Although Suphankanlaya is a historical figure, there aren’t many concrete historical facts about her life, and personal information is mostly speculations or legends. A Siamese princess, she agreed to marry the Burmese king Bayinnaung in exchange for her brothers’ safe return home and the fortification of the alliance between her father and Burma. After her husband’s death, she was married to Bayinnaung’s son and successor Nandabayin. When her father died and her younger brother became king, the oath of allegiance was broken. In response to Nandabayin’s son dying by the hand of her brother, Suphankanlaya was tortured and killed.

However, even though these events took place almost five centuries prior, Suphankanlaya’s story re-emerged in the late 20th century, and she became both a national heroine and a symbol for self-sacrifice and national assertiveness in Thailand.
