Nanchao Period (650 – 1250 AD): After founding a Thai kingdom in Southern China, the Thai people migrated further south where they settled on the Central Plain under the rule of the Khmer Empire. The independent Thai state of Sukhothai was founded in approximately 1238 AD.

Sukhothai Period (1238 – 1378 AD): Thai history’s ‘golden era’, the 13th Century was a time when the Thais became a powerful force in independence and forged an ideal state governed by kind rulers. However, the more powerful Ayutthaya asserted itself over Sukhothai in 1350.
