Foundation of the Thai Kingdom
The Thai Kingdom, like many other Post-Srivijaya States, was established after the blossoming of the year 907 (154 AD). After the Srivijaya attempted to invade the Khmer Kingdom, the area where most of the rebellions were happening and the place with the largest population, the whole of the Southeast Asian peninsula began to declare its independence from the Srivijaya Empire. It would take some years before these different Kingdoms would feel established enough to start actual wars. The first battle by the Thai was the Battle of the Andaman Sea. The naval supremacy which the Thai gained was due to the large port that the Thai had in the city of Pathein which controlled the area of the Irawady Delta. It was strategic in that region and was taken by the Thai, as its civilians were mostly of the Thai ethnicity, and their ships became Thai ships. This power of the sea gave them the ability to take on the Srivijaya and the Japanese Empires alongside the Maurya and eventually led to the death of the Maharajah and his Empire in 916 (163 AD). The leader of the intellectual movement among the Thai became their first King, Thaunthong, at the age of 26 years in the year 907 (154 AD). Despite their early victories, the Thai found themselves isolated in the Post-Srivijaya world of Asia. The Maurya and Thai relationship severely declined after the end of the Srivijaya Empire and the Japanese had no interest in them. The other Southeast Asian Peninsula Kingdoms were too busy with their own issues and also ignored the Thai.
