Chakri Mahaprasad Hall guard photo[edit]

I think the addition of this photo lacks relevance. The entire article doesn't even mention any of the King's Guard regiments. --Paul_012 (talk) 10:33, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Why no RTGS romanization[edit]

Does someone know why the name of the King is romanized as Bhumibol and not as Phumiphon? --FredTC (talk) 11:05, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

The RTGS was never widely adopted for personal names. Most royal names use transliterations based on their Pali/Sanskrit roots. --Paul_012 (talk) 17:00, 30 November 2014 (UTC)

Title[edit]

Why is the King not listed under his royal title (Rama IX)? It seems weird that Juan Carlos I and Elizabeth II are listed by their royal (numerical) titles but Adulyadej isn't. It's akin to writing 'Elizabeth Windsor', which just seems weird (and is incorrect). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.67.117.226 (talkcontribs) 11:42, 30 November 2014‎ (UTC)

As has been mentioned before, "Bhumibol Adulyadej" is the king's royal name, equivalent to the "Elizabeth" part. The family name (surname), when used, is "Mahidol", and that is equivalent to "Windsor". Rama n is a form of numerical notation, but not a formal royal title. --Paul_012 (talk) 16:57, 30 November 2014 (UTC)
