Lao Steampunk: Siamese ambassadors from 1686


Over at the Auguste Pavie website, they have an interesting image of Siamese ambassadors at the court of Louis XVI in 1686. This is a site that would definitely be an essential resource for writers seeking to create historical fiction and steampunk fiction set in Southeast Asia, particularly Laos.

One wonders what the real side stories of this journey to French for the Siamese ambassadors and their entourage were.
