Oun Kham (1811 or 1816 - December 15, 1895) was King of Luang Prabang during 1872-1887 and a second time between 1889 and 1895.[1][2] On 7 June 1887 the Lao royal capital was seized and sacked; the elderly ruler barely escaped with his life. Between his two ruling period he was exiled in Bangkok where he gave assistance to Auguste Pavie. The last two years of his reign ended with the establishment of a French protectorate over Laos.
