The Portuguese were among the very first Europeans to engage the Siamese. Flores’ monograph explores the role of Portuguese missionaries, traders, soldiers and adventurers in Thailand in the 16th century. The actions of these players set the stage for the bitter rivalry among the Portuguese, Dutch and French, for influence at the Siamese court, commencing at the end of the century. Based on Flores’ acclaimed master’s thesis at The Centre for Overseas History, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal.
