9781331508250: English Intercourse With Siam in the Seventeenth Century (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from English Intercourse With Siam in the Seventeenth Century

Towards the close of the thirteenth century, Siam had established its influence over Tenasserim and Tavoy, and even as far north as Martaban, as the second Shan king of that principality, on ascending the throne of his brother Watern, the first of this Shan dynasty of the Pegu king dom, had to solicit a recognition of his title from the king of Siam.2 His successor, the third king, although mar ried to a daughter of the king of Siam, took possession of Tavoy and Tenasserim; but during the reign of the fourth monarch, about 1325-30, the provinces of Tavoy and Tenasserim were recovered by Siam. In 1373, the Siamese are said to have founded the town of Tenasserim, and seven years later to have built the pagoda of Wot tsheng,3 still standing on the ruins of Old Tenasserim. This sacred edifice has been enabled to withstand the onslaught of five centuries by the ever-recurring repara tive efforts, the good work of pious Buddhists.
