In thailand we call people who live in Cambodia is Khmen and Ccitizen of Old Khmer Empire we call "Khom".

An we do not belive to group of people is the same group.

We respect so much on "Khom" But Khmen.
Khom is something high, clever, but Khmen is different.

If you reserch on the history of Khmer Empire. The Empire had an immigrant from the Indian. The Bhram caste. The Bhram caste immigated from indian and settle in the land we call Cambodia now. In this land, there have their indiguous people who live here, uncivilize. But after Bhram create a Kingdom and later the Empre. They become a ruling caste.

The structure of Khmer Empire was like an Indian. There have a caste system, but it is not so strong like in India because of the influence from Budhist. The Bhram become ruling caste and indegous people become a farmer, slave, or serf.

When khmer Emire was collapsed by Siam. The siam army took the ruling caste of Khmer empire to Ayuthaya. That is why Ayutthaya had more influence from Khmer Empire.

The Khamen had a very weak link with the Old "Khom". They are a lower caste of Khmer society. Ofter the higher caste was gone. The Khamen in rural area and a distance areas create a new kingdom and the sucessor kingdom never success like a Khmer Empire. Because the are not as good as quality like the old one. That is why Khamen is very weak. However, they have seen his master glorius day. Most of them dream about the glorius day that they had been live with their master, "Khom".

That is why Siam pay restpect on Khom never Khamen.

khamens and khoms are just the same word for khmer, in angkor there was hardly any distintion between them, khoms are just regular people. and ps, do you think you descended from royalty, master builders, your ancestors were probaly slaves of the higher class? you mad cuz our empire was wayy better then ayyuthuya, it fell because of ignorant kings but at its peak it was one of asia's greatest civilization, producing religous art topping that of any civilization, larger then any european city at the time, it had hospitals, inns, produce crops 4 times a year, women enjoy high status, one great temple took more then 60,000 people to operate, the population was well above a million.
