|King Prajadhipok (Rama VII) of Siam|
After a military coup challenged King Prajadhipok's (Rama VII) suspension of the
constitution in 1933, and the failure of a counter-revolution in support of the royal
government, the king departed on January 12, 1934, for a visit to Europe and did
not return. The execution of the counter-revolutionary leaders led to King Prajadhipok's
abdication in March 1935, in favor of his ten-year old nephew, Ananda Mahidol.
The country was ruled by a Council of Regency, headed by Prince Aditya Dibabha.
