King PhraBuddhaLertla Napalai ( RAMA II ) 1809 - 1824

          During King Rama II 's reign of sixteen years, the country was in peace and free from wars. He therefore had enough time to enrich the country in arts, literature and architecture. Especially, the literature during his reign was in its maximum growth and considered as standard example either poetry or plays which were improved both in words and melody. He himself wrote many literary works. The most important of his work was “Inao” because many poems from this play were later applied by Thai singers and musicians in their songs.
