Royal Thai Army and Police
 

   The Royal Thai Armed Forcesis the name of the military of the Kingdom of Thailand. It consists mainly of the following branches: Royal Thai Army, Royal Thai Navy, Royal Thai Marine Corps, Royal Thai Air Force
Created in 1852, the Royal Thai Armed Forces came into existence as permanent force at the behest of King Mongkut, who needed a European trained military force to thwart any Western threat and any attempts at colonialisation. By 1887, during the next reign of King Chulalongkorn, a permanent military command in the Kalahom Department was established. However the office of Kalahom and the military of Siam had existed since the days of the Sukhothai Kingdom in the 13th century. In fact the history of the Kings of Siam is teeming with tales of military conquest and power.However, since 1932, when the military, with the help of civilians, overthrew the system of absolute monarchy and instead created a constitutional system, the military has dominated and been in control of Thai politics, providing it with many prime ministers and carrying out many coups d'état, the most recent being in 2014.
