Main article: Cultural Profile: Sukhothai Kingdom, Dawn of Thailand

The Sukhothai Kingdom existed from 1238 to 1438, when it was absorbed into the more powerful Kingdom of Ayutthaya. It was largely a Theravada Buddhist territory. The Sukhothai Kingdom is often considered the first Thai Kingdom, as it was the first true declaration of Thai people’s independence.
