Abstract: This thesis examines the changes in Thai coronation ritual from the mid-nineteenth through the mid-twentieth centuries as part of the transformation of Thai kingship and of the representation of the monarchy, as well as the potential of ritual to function in support of kingship.The study finds that the coronation ritual was used as a political instrument to represent the kingship, prestige, and legitimacy of Thai monarchs. The changes in coronation ritual were consequences of domestic factors such as state politics and changes in perceptions of the monarchs, as well as Western influences such as modernization and colonialism. Each of the coronations studied represents a specific response to specific political, social and diplomatic conditions at the time it took place, as well as a contribution to the long-term evolution of the modern Thai monarchy.
