Bangkok.
The History of the Name for Bangkok

Since the destruction of the Thai Kingdoms old capital Ayutthaya near Thonburi, which was then Siam, the new city which is where Bangkok now stands has changed its name four times. The then King Rama I built this new city on the opposite bank of the Menam River to the old city. This new capital, off the Chao Phraya River, was but a small village, but two years later it was renamed, Rattanakosin in 1787. However, during the reign of King Rama III, the name was altered again to what it is now, but barely ever uttered.
Bangkoks Real Name

The name that King Rama III granted for the new capital of Thailand, is the citys present name. In full, it is: Krungthep Maha Nakorn, Amarn Rattanakosindra. Mahindrayudhya, Mahadilokopop Noparatana Rajdhani Mahasathan, Amorn Piman Avatarn Satit, Sakkatultiya Vishnukarn Prasit.
