My mom was telling me some things it could just be rumors or actually the truth. who knows but here's the story.

But you know government officals tend to send their children abroad to study.
Well rumor has it that the last king of laos wasnt royalty but a child of a general. And the real Laos royalty is the King of cambodia. Now now wait... hear me out.

Well All these children were abroad and the parents went to pick up their children and well the King of Laos then picked the child of a general instead of his own son. (not surprising since royalty and upperclass back then didnt take care of their children but had nannies) And so The king of Cambodia picked the actual prince of laos and off they went.

So he was raised in Cambodia as prince and years later he visited laos and could point out all the places he played at as a child and where he craved his name or a picture or something into a tree and it was there.
He also was given a Laos princess as one of his wives.

My mom tells it so much better but that's the jist of it.

But i was wondering if anyone else heard his rumor too?

Yep. The former king. he stepped down so his son could take over.

I was looking at his list of wives and the second one has a lao name. My mom did say somethign about his second wife being Lao given to him by Laos.

His uncle Minovong Sisowath has many ties to the Southern Lao Kingdom of NaChampassak, who lather migrated south and are now known as the Khmer Yenaws. His second wife Princess Sisowath Pongsanmoni could be a child of the Nachampasacs. I gotta check this out.

The King of Khmer Rock and Roll was also a Laotion
Sinsisamouth was also a child of th Khmer Yenaws.

But keep in mind, back then all of Laos and Cambodia was apart of Frecn Indochina. The Vietnames Khmer and Laos lived without borders in the French colony.

I wished there were no mistake to begin with....... I can say no more. It breaks my heart how my people suffer. I wish you guys can take him and his family back, a very, very long time ago. However, wishing so doesn't make it so. icon_sad.gif

I love my parents, but sometimes I feel like their story have no creditability, because they heard from someone else. In general we tend to believe what ever our love ones told us, even though the source can not be verified.

hahhaa, totally. this thing with the Laotian parent stories just makes me a
skeptic and keep us all seeking for more answers. it probably has to do with
the efficiency of our oral history culture, in other words, rumour spread-ing
and quick gossipers icon_smile.gif but that's what makes us great story-tellers too.

so yes, i've been trying to seek out historical credibility on this one too. it's a
cute little story to tell, especially to Khmer friends and then get bashed by the
scholars.

it's just always good to QUESTION icon_wink.gif but i'm glad i stumbled upon this one too.
i've been trying to get my politically-liberal-conspiracy-believing-outrageous-radical
father to show proof of these silly statements before he goes around presenting
these ideas. cuz history must be based on evidence not hearsays, bottom line.

so it's a bit embarassing when he starts talking to ur parents' friends about these
conspiracy theories he actually buys into. hahaha.

Anybody that believes this $hit is fu-king retarded. How the fu-k are Humans not to recognize their own children. Even fu-king Monkies can pick out their kids in a crown of other monkies.

This is just another ancient taboid rumor fabricated to discreated the Cambodians.
