Based on actual events in 16th century Thailand, The Legend of Suriyothai begins during a peaceful era, but forces from both outside and within conspire to test the strength of the nation.
As the story unfolds, the Thai kingdom of Ayuthaya is enjoying a period of peace and prosperity, but the country's stability is soon threatened by corruption and civil war. Palace intrigues and deceptions abound: one king who takes the throne in a coup d'etat is then deceived by his beautiful new wife, a former high courtesan named Srisudachan.
She plots her husband's downfall, pushing her lover Worawongsa to usurp the throne, and to restore her clan, the U-Thong in its claim to power.
