Historical Description

The Thai may not immigrated to what is now Thailand until the 11th century. They established several kingdoms that were united in the centuries that followed. However, until the 19th century there was no national state of Thailand, but the many local principalities (Müang) remained and were only obliged to pay tribute to the rulers in the center. These networks of Müang dependent on a ruler are called mandalas. Their area of influence had no fixed borders, but could expand and contract again over time. During the colonial era, Thailand managed to maintain its independence and it developed into a modern central state.
