Princess Srinagarindra Royal Cremation  03-1996  
 Known as:        
 Description:        Princess Srinagarindra  ศรีนครินทรา (21 October 1900 – 18 July 1995) née Sangwan Talapat สังวาลย์ ตะละภัฏ was a member of the Thai Royal Family and was a member of House of Mahidol, which is descended from Chakri Dynasty, originated by Prince Mahidol Adulyadej, the Prince of Songkla, son of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V). She was the mother of Princess Galyani Vadhana, the Princess of Naradhiwas, King Ananda Mahidol (Rama VIII), and King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX).

Her given name was Sangwan (Thai: สังวาลย์), while her formal name and title were Somdet Phra Srinagarindra Boromarajajonani (Thai: สมเด็จพระศรีนครินทราบรมราชชนนี). In Thailand, she was affectionately called Somdet Ya (Thai: สมเด็จย่า), "the Royal Grandmother". By the various hill tribe people, to whom she was a special patron, she was called Mae Fah Luang (Thai: แม่ฟ้าหลวง), "Royal Mother from the Sky" or "The Heavenly Royal Mother"

The Princess Mother lived officially in Srapathum Palace with her daughter, Princess Galyani Vadhana. In the mid-1991, she apparently fell in her bedroom, never entirely recovering from that accident. In November 1993, December 1994, and again in June 1995 she was admitted to the Siriraj Hospital for treatment. Princess Srinagarindra died on 18 July 1995 at Siriraj Hospital at the age of 94. She was one of the longest-living Thai royals.

There is some confusion as to why the Princess Mother was never titled Queen Mother, considering that she was the mother of two kings. Since her husband was never king and only had the title of a prince, she never ascended as a queen consort, and therefore she was given the title Princess Mother by her son.
