Sai Ong Hue


Sai Ong Hue

▪ king of Lan Xang
also called  Setthathirat Ii, or Ong Lo  
died 1735

      ruler (1700?–35) of the Lao kingdom of Lan Xang which, during his reign, was divided into two rival kingdoms at Vientiane and Luang Prabang.

      Sai Ong Hue was a grandson of the great ruler Suliyavongsa. He spent most of his early years as a prince of the royal house in exile at Hue (now in Vietnam) while a usurper sat on the throne of Lan Xang. In 1698 he attacked Vientiane, the capital of Lan Xang, and with the aid of Vietnamese forces ousted the pretender and secured the city. In 1700 he declared himself king, and in 1705 he moved the Prabang Buddha, sacred religious statue and symbol of royalty, from Luang Prabang to Vientiane. His rival, Kingkitsarat, succeeded in capturing Luang Prabang from Sai Ong Hue in 1707. The two enemies immediately appealed to the larger, more powerful surrounding states to maintain their kingdoms. Sai Ong Hue turned to Vietnam and Siam, becoming vassal to both and initiating conditions of dependence, disunity, and outside interference that were to plague Laos for the next three centuries.
