Who is the king of Thailand, one of the most controversial and extravagant in the world

Thailand has one of the most extravagant and questioned monarchies in recent years. This because of their king Maha Vajiralongkornwho has starred in several controversies about his married life, his tastes in dressing and his behavior with his servants.

Scandal after scandal

The law of Thailand punishes those who defame the royal family for up to 15 years. However, Maha leads a life full of controversy, far from discreet.

A few years ago, the king was banned from broadcasting in inappropriate attire, such as jeans, flip flops and a top that exposed all his tattoos.

For the coronavirus pandemic, Maha Vajiralongkorn decided to isolate himself by reserving an entire hotel in southern Germany for himself and his more than 20 concubines.

It is known that he leaves his country at key moments, for example he spends most of the time in his mansion in Bavaria, on the edge of Lake Starnberg.

Ex-wife in prison

The third wife of the king, Srirasmi Suwadee is now under house arrest. They divorced 6 years ago, after 13 years of marriage. She is the mother of his only son.

She was accused of corrupting her family, which caused the princess to be banished to a village and separated from her son. Dipangkorn Rasmijoti 15 years old, who lives with the king.

The woman finds herself with a shaved head and living alone, unable to leave the house and dedicating herself to gardening.

Another aspect that draws attention is that Vajiralongkorn forces all his employees to crouch down so that they are not at his height. In addition to asking for strange orders between his days.

Fortune is not left aside, since he has a fortune estimated at 30,000 million euros, a wealth that he obtains through the Royal Property Office.
