Sultanate of Singora

The '''Sultanate of Singora''' was a heavily fortified port city in southern Thailand and precursor of the present-day town of Songkhla. It was founded in the early 1600s by a Persian, Dato Mogol, and flourished during the reign of his son, Sultan Sulaiman Shah. In 1680, after decades of conflict, the city was destroyed and abandoned; remains include forts, city walls, a Dutch cemetery and the tomb of Sultan Sulaiman Shah. An inscribed cannon from Singora bearing the seal of Sultan Sulaiman Shah is displayed next to the flagpole at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, London.

The sultanate's history was documented in accounts, letters and journals written by British (East India Company) and Dutch East India Company traders; its destruction was discussed in books and reports authored by representatives of the French embassies (France–Thailand relations) to Siam in the mid 1680s. Sultan Sulaiman's family history has also been chronicled: Princess Sri Sulalai (Sri Sulalai), a consort of King Rama II (Buddha Loetla Nabhalai) and mother of King Rama III (Jessadabodindra), was descended from Sultan Sulaiman; present-day descendants include the 22nd Prime Minister of Thailand (Chavalit Yongchaiyudh) and a former Navy admiral.
