Abstract

This article examines the formation of modern northern Thai history in the Phongsawadan Yonok based on how it was created. It aims to answer the central research question: What kind of history is demonstrated in this chronicle? Previous studies on the Phongsawadan Yonok have stated that the work was created as a modern Thai historical writing without factoring in the author’s experiences and the work’s historical construction. Thus, using a historiographical approach, this article argues that the Phongsawadan Yonok, which was created by Phraya Prachakitkorachak, was based on his experiences while working in northern Siam. The time period of its construction was characterized by British and French expansion into the area, territory conflicts in northern Siam, and attempts by local provincial administrations – including that of northern Siam since the 1880s – to integrate northern regions and assimilate northern people into the Kingdom of Siam. The Phongsawadan Yonok makes a significant contribution to Thai historiography by expanding upon the linear history and connecting the history of the northern region with that of Siam. As a result, the geographical location of the Kingdom of Siam was expanded to include Shan, Sipsong Panna, and Lan Chang.
