Thanphuying Busba Kitiyakara Sathanapong (Thai: บุษบา กิติยากร สธนพงศ์; rtgsButsaba Kitiyakon Sathanaphong, born 1934) was the daughter of Mom Chao Nakkhatra Mangkala Kitiyakara and younger sister of Sirikit Kitiyakara, who became Queen of Thailand.

Early life and education[edit]

Like her elder Sirikit, Busba was educated at Rajini School and St. Francis Xavier Convent. During her childhood, her father was appointed Thai Ambassador to France, Denmark and the United Kingdom, and Busba continued her education in these countries with her sister, Sirikit. After Sirikit's marriage to King Bhumibol in 1950, Busba became a palace fixture.


Busba married Thawisan Ladawan in 1958 and had a daughter, Suthawan Ladawan Sathirathai on 24 September 1958. They divorced soon afterwards.

She later married Captain Surayud Sathanapong.
