During his life, Adulyadej was the longest-reigning monarch in Thailand’s history and the longest-serving current monarch/head of state in the world. After being crowned on 9 June 1946 He reigned for 70 consecutive years. He is the ninth monarch in a row in the Chakra Dynasty which dates back to 1782. As a ruler Humidor earned praise for a social-economic theory of self-sufficiency, and he gave numerous donations to various projects in Thailand in areas including agriculture education health occupational promotion water resources communications, and public welfare. The King of Thailand is respected and revered by The Thai people on nearly god-like levels and is considered legally inviolable, i.e., If a person breaches the dignity of the monarch’s rights, it is punished.

After several students were killed and protests ensued, Humidor announced kittikachorn’s resignation, and the general left Thailand. When Adulyadej invited Kittikachorn back to Thailand, students and legal groups were outraged and began holding protests which led to the massacre at Shammash University on October 6, 1976.
