His daughter, Princess Dara Rasmi of Chiang Mai become King Rama V's Princess Consort. During his reign the ties of the previously independent tributary state with the central government in Bangkok were intensified, culminating in the creation of the Monthon Phayap in 1892, by which Lanna was formally annexed.

He is a grandson of Prince Khamfan, the 3rd ruler of Chiangmai. He was concerned about the preservation of the mountain forests in the Thai highlands. Before he died he ordered that his remains be kept at Doi Luang, the highest mountain of the Thanon Thong Chai Range, which was renamed Doi Inthanon after his death.

In 1883, a rumour that Queen Victoria of Great Britain intended to adopt his daughter, Dara Rasmi, spread from Burma to Chiangmai and Bangkok, alarmed Siamese government of British desire in Lanna. The Siamese King sent his brother, Prince Pichit Prichakorn, to Chiangmai to forward the King's proposal to Dara Rasmi.
