Phra Bat Somdet Phra Poramintharamaha Chulalongkorn Phra Chunla Chom Klao Chao Yu Hua (Thai: พระบาทสมเด็จพระปรมินทรมหาจุฬาลงกรณ์ฯ พระจุลจอมเกล้าเจ้าอยู่หัว), or Rama V (20 September 1853 – 23 October 1910) wis the fift monarch o Siam unner the Hoose o Chakri. He wis kent tae the Siamese o his time as Phra Phuttha Chao Luang (พระพุทธเจ้าหลวง - The Royal Buddha). He is considered ane o the greatest keengs o Siam. His reign wis characterized bi the modrenization o Siam, immense government an social reforms, an territorial cessions tae the Breetish Empire an French Indocheenae. As Siam wis threatened bi Wastren expansionism, Chulalongkorn, through his policies an acts, managed tae save Siam frae being colonized. Aw his reforms wur dedicatit tae Siam’s insurance o survival in the midst o Wastren colonialism, so that Chulalongkorn earned the epithet Phra Piya Maharat (พระปิยมหาราช - The Great Belovit Keeng).
