Project Proposal
International Colloquium in Commemoration of the 500 Years of
Thai-Portuguese Relations
8-9 March 2012
Maha Chulalongkorn Building, room 111
Chulalongkorn University
Rationale
The Thai-Portuguese relation is considered the longest relation Thailand has ever had
with a western country. The relation can be traced back to the time of the Kingdom of
Ayutthaya, during 14th-18th centuries.
In mid-15th century, the age of marine science innovation in Europe especially in
Spain and Portugal, people started to use compass and map. The King of Portugal had an
initiative to support global marine exploration in search for sources of spice. Portuguese
explorers led by Vasco da Gama were able to reach India in 1498. In 1505, the first
Portuguese viceroy was sent to Kochi (Cochin), making Portugal the first western country to
dominate Indian spice trade. However, it turned out that India was not the main source of
spice as expected. Portuguese explorers, therefore, continued eastward to Southeast Asia and
Macau, and started a contact with Siam in 1511, during the reign of King Ramathibodi II
(สมเด็จพระรามาธิบดีที่สอง) of Ayutthaya by sending two diplomats to Siam for the first time after
gaining control of Malacca. Seven years later came the second delegation, and the first treaty
was signed. In 1515, during the time of the third Portuguese viceroy, the colonial state of
India or „Estado da India‟ was established to legitimize the trade in India, resulting in the
settlement of a number of Portuguese in the region including in Siam. The Portuguese settlers
were granted a land to build the first community in Ayutthaya during the reign of King Narai
the Great (สมเด็จพระนารายณ์มหาราช).
Portuguese influence in Siam could be witnessed since the Ayutthaya period; The
Portuguese newcomers worked in Ayutthaya in various occupations such as merchants and
military service, including the training in the use of guns for Ayutthaya soldiers, and also
served as advisers to the King in the royal court. Moreover, the interaction between people of
the two nations leads to cultural dissemination, in the art of culinary and dessert making.
Leaving Ayutthaya after 1767, the Portuguese sent again missions during king Rama I‟s reign
and later established a Consulate in 1820 during the reign of King Rama II of the
Rattanakosin Period. The King granted land on the side of the Chao Phraya River to build the
first Portuguese Consulate; the place is now the Embassy of Portugal. Relations between two
nations have become closer after the First Royal visit of King Chulalongkorn to Europe and
to Portugal in 1897. Portuguese descendants in Thailand have assimilated with Thai society
and have contributed to Thailand in many ways. Nowadays, people of both countries have
been in contact in with various purposes, especially trade, tourism, and academia.
On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Thailand-Portugal relations in 2011, along
with other activities from Thai- and Portuguese institutions, the Centre for European Studies
at Chulalongkorn University, representing Chulalongkorn University, and the Instituto do
Oriente – ISCSP, representing the Technical University of Lisbon, with the support of the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Portugal and the Embassy of Portugal in Thailand , will
organize an international colloquium in commemoration of the “500 Years of ThaiPortuguese Relations.”
