WORLD'S LONGEST- REIGNING MONARCH, KING BHUMIBOL ADULYADEJ OF THAILAND IS DEAD!

Thailand’s King, Bhumibol Adulyadej, who was the world’s longest-reigning monarch, has died at the Siriraj Hospital hospital today Thursday October 13 at age 88.


He reigned for 70 years after ascending the throne in 1946.

His loss will be deeply mourned in Thailand; he was seen as head of an institution central to Thai identity and as a father-figure to the nation. He was regarded as a pillar of stability during decades of political upheaval and rapid development.

His son, the 63-year-old Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn, is expected to become Thailand’s new king.
