The Cambodian Usurpation 1811-12

[ 1811 - 1812 ]

King Ang Chan II (1791-1835) acknowledged both Siamese (Thai) and Vietnamese suzerainty over his country, Cambodia, hoping to keep the peace by paying tribute to Siam and Vietnam. Ang Chan's brother sought Siamese aid in an attempt to usurp the throne (1811); King Rama II (1768-1824) of Siam sent an army, which helped to oust Ang Chan, who fled to southern Vietnam to secure aid to regain the throne. Vietnam's Emperor Gia Long (1762-1820) sent a large force whose intimidating presence in Cambodia caused the Siamese to withdraw without fighting. Ang Chan was enthroned again.
