I agree, the bloodline between the Communist Loas and the Khmer have always been close. Unfortunately, the dirty evil Youns are killing off the Communist slowly without them even knowing it, they have much to learn about the dirty evil Youns and their ambitions.

You are right, the dirty Youns are evil. Before 1975, The Communist Loas was a free country, after 1975, the dirty Youns are now related to the Communist Loas.

Leave khmer alone, you dirty Youns, we Khmer will never accept you dirty Youns.

Thanks for sharing the story again. You are right, according to most of my research the Khmer princess was given to Fa Ngoum during the early years, also during the early years of the Sukhothai Kingdom, a Khmer princess was also given to the Siam in exchange for guarding the border post.

Here is another interesting facts,

In 1373, the royals and nobles of his own court exiled him. His son Un Heuan (often called Samsenethai a name adopted for the 300,000 Tai people of Lan Xang; then ascended to the throne of Lan Xang. Who was barely 18 when he acceded the throne. He was named after the 1376 census, which concluded that he ruled over 300,000 Tais living in Laos; samsen means, literally, 300,000.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fa_Ngum

This goes to show that there were 300, 000 Tais back in the days, under Fa Ngum ruling. We need to know more about the Tais who migrated from China.

You are truly revealing your Viet's dirty tactic of invading neighboring countries.

You are saying 30% of the Laotian population is Viets. This translates to roughly around 2 million barbaric Viets illegally poluting the Laotian land.

Now, there was a claim that around 4 million barbaric Viets illegally living in Cambodia. This translates to around 27% of the entire Cambodian population, which is in line with your 30% of Viets in Laos.

Therefore, the claim that 4 millions of barbaric Viets living in Cambodia cannot be disputed.

I like the Laos history, they are more inline with the Khmer history and the Burmese history. In general, Laos history are more accurate then the distorted Siam history. I cant understand why the Siams are so nieve with their history and why they disown everyones history. Why do the Siam enjoy stealing peoples culture and history?

The Siam even stole their numbers from us? Sorry im going off track again. Khmer history is so vast, i cant contain my research :D

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thai_numerals

Thai numerals constitute a numeral system of Thai number names for the Khmer numerals traditionally used in Thailand, also used for the more common Arabic numerals, and which follow the Hindu-Arabic numeral system.

Laos has a connected history with Khmers. One of the Laotian students used to joke,“Your king is my king.”

When Sukhothai fell and with the Khmer empire started to crumble, Fa Ngum began a campaign to form the first Laotian kingdom. He called it “Lan Xang,” meaning the “Land of a Million Elephants.” In 1353, Fa Ngum declared himself king. He married a Khmer princess and the Khmer royal court gave him a sacred Buddha statue made of gold named Pra Bang as a gift. Fa Ngum made Buddhism his state religion. His followers pledged support to the king before this Buddha statue. A city called Luang Prabang was named after this statue and became the cradle of Laos for the next 200 years.

The Khmer words Luang Prabang (or Preah Bang) has a meaning. Luang means King. In Cambodia, there is a historical water site called Kompong Luang (where the king bathed). This site is not too far from Udong, the old ancient Khmer capital. Kompong Luang is also in So Saveoun's song. Preah (Laos and Thais usually call Pra) is a highly respectful title (as in Preah Put [Buddha]), and Bang means brother. The literal translation is the King Brother.

Thats interesting, one of my Laos friends last name is Keomonivong. I told her to find out about her last name, as it may have connection to the Khmer Royal families. She later told me that her father bloodline is Khmer.

Lucikly for her, she doesnt have any dirty Youn blood in her families :D

:D Thats so true. Most of my Laos friends are like that, but like us, they know little about the Kings or their Kingdom.

You imbecile, the princess of Yasodharapura, not of Khmer, was given to Khun Pa Muang of Sukhothai with the sword to make him Indravarman III of Angkor!

You ignoramus, Laos never own Isaan.

The Isssan or the northeastern Thailand was ruled by Funan and Chenla and later became under Ayudhaya when the power of Chenla was shifted from Yasodharapura to Ayudhaya.

Viang Chan and Luang Prabang are on the other side of the river and both were cities under Ayudhaya.

Lao people in Isaan today were brought in by Bangkok, only less than 200 years ago, some of them were brought to dig canals in Bangkok, some were left in Isaan.

Viang Chan, Luang Prabang and Phnom Pehn back then were only border cities under Ayudhaya (1350 was the rising time of Ayudhaya and the dawn of Yasodharapura)

If you buffoon don't know what you are talking about, you better keep your mouth zipped, so people won't know that you are gormless.

The word "Samsen" is from the word "Sam San" or 300,000.

It's a district name in Bangkok.

The name is from a legend about a Buddha image floating along the Chao Praya River. People tried to bring the Buddha out of the water and it required 300,000 people to achieve that.

So they called the land where they pull the Buddha image out of the water "Sam Saan" later became Samsen.

Sam and Saan are Tai words. And do you wonder why Khmer count 30 as Sam Sib using Tai words?
