Patani in The Bangkok Period
Pattani was easily defeated by Siam and resumed its tributary status.

Britain recognized the Thai ownership of Pattani by treaty in 1909. Yala and Narathiwat remain separate provinces to this day.

Famous quotes containing the word period:
“Words convey the mental treasures of one period to the generations that follow; and laden with this, their precious freight, they sail safely across gulfs of time in which empires have suffered shipwreck and the languages of common life have sunk into oblivion.”
—Anonymous. Quoted in Richard Chevenix Trench, On the Study of Words, lecture 1 (1858)
