Coup D'Etat Ends Monarchy in Siam
The army staged a coup d'état that ended the absolute powers of the monarchy. The coup was staged by young army officers educated abroad. They held the King captive for a short period until he agreed to a new constitution. Under this new constitution, a national assembly was created– half-appointed and half-elected– under universal suffrage.
