Abstract

Chowfa Maha Vajiravudh, born January 1, 1881, eldest sou of the late King Chulalongkorn I., succeeded to the throne on the death of his father, October 23, 1910, and was crowned on December 2, 1911. The royal dignity is nominally hereditary, but does not descend always from the father to the eldest son, each sovereign being invested with the privilege of nominating his own successor. On November 24, 1910, it was officially announced that until the new King has male issue, the succession will pass presumptively through the line of the Queen Mother’s sons. Therefore, Prince Chowfa Chakrapongse Poowanarth, born March 3, 1881, is the Heir Presumptive.
