Thonburi Kingdom

The Thonburi Kingdom was a Siamese kingdom which existed from 1767 to 1782, centered around the city of Thonburi, in present-day Thailand. The kingdom was founded by Taksin the Great, who reunited Siam following short-lived Burmese occupation of the country after the fall of the Ayutthaya Kingdom in 1767. The Thonburi Kingdom oversaw the resumption of Siamese military conflicts with its regional rival, Burma, leading to the creation of a martial-dominated Siamese state and the reestablishment of Siam as a major regional military power, with Siam expanding to its greatest territorial extent to that point in its history through the recapture of all of Ayutthaya's former lands excluding the western Tenasserim Coast and the incorporation of Lan Na, the Laotian kingdoms, the Northern Malay states, and Cambodia under Siam's sphere of influence. The Thonburi Kingdom saw the resumption and dominance of Qing Chinese trade in Siam, a process which had gradually taken place beginning in the late Ayutthaya Kingdom, continued under Thonburi and into the future Rattanakosin Kingdom.

Kingdom of Champasak

The Kingdom of Champasak or Bassac, (1713–1904) was a Lao kingdom under Nokasad, a grandson of King Sourigna Vongsa, the last king of Lan Xang and son-in-law of the Cambodian King Chey Chettha IV. Bassac and the neighboring principalities of Attapeu and Stung Treng emerged as power centers under what was later to be described as the Mandala Southeast Asian political model.

Nokasad was a grandson of the last king of Lan Xang, King Sourigna Vongsa; and a son-in-law of the Cambodian King Chey Chettha IV. He was made king of the southern Laotian Kingdom of Champasak from 1713 to 1737. In 1718, the first Lao muang in the Chi valley — and indeed anywhere in the interior of the Khorat Plateau — was founded at Suwannaphum District in present-day Roi Et Province by an official in the service of this king. In 1725, he turned his executive powers over to his eldest son; he died at Khorat in 1738.

Lao rebellion (1826–1828)

The Lao rebellion, also known as Anouvong's Rebellion or Lao–Siamese War, was an attempt by King Anouvong of the Kingdom of Vientiane to end the suzerainty of Siam and recreate the former kingdom of Lan Xang. In January 1827 the Lao armies of the kingdoms of Vientiane and Champasak moved south and west across the Khorat Plateau, advancing as far as Saraburi. The Siamese quickly mounted a counterattack, forcing the Lao forces to retreat. The Siamese continued north to defeat Anouvong's army. His rebellion had failed, which led to his capture, the destruction of his city of Vientiane in retaliation, a massive resettlement of Lao people to the west bank of the Mekong River, and direct Siamese administration of the former territories of the Kingdom of Vientiane. The legacy of the Lao rebellion is controversial. It is viewed in Thailand as a ruthless and daring rebellion that had to be suppressed, and has given rise to the folk heroes such as Thao Suranari. In Laos, King Anouvong is now revered as a national hero who died in pursuit of complete independence, even though he both lost his life in an ill-advised revolt against heavy odds and virtually guaranteed that the Lao-speaking provinces across the Mekong River would remain as part of Siam.
