Fact of the Day: American Thai King

King Rama IX of Thailand (personal name Bhumibol Adulyadej) was actually born in Massachusetts as his father Prince Mahidol Adulyadej was studying at Harvard at the time. Thus he was the only monarch born in the United States of America.

  3. Interesting. During World War II, the Dutch Queen was evacuated to Canada for safety reasons. She gave birth in Ottawa and the federal government officially declared her hospital room to be Dutch territory so the child could legally be said to have been born in the Netherlands.
