Norodom of Cambodia

First Name Norodom
Born on February 3, 1834
Died on April 24, 1904 (aged 70)

Norodom, born Ang Voddey, was the King of Cambodia from 1860 to his death in 1904. He was the eldest son of King Ang Duong and was a half-brother of Prince Si Votha and King Sisowath. He was elected to the throne in 1860 but would not be crowned until 1864 due to the fact that Siam held the royal regalia. In 1863, he signed a treaty with France by which he gave France control over Cambodia's foreign relations in exchange for personal protection against his enemies. The treaty saved Cambodian independence, but French control over Cambodia's internal affairs strengthened continually until the end of his reign. He reigned for 43 years and 188 days and was succeeded by his half-brother Sisowath after his death.
