 THE POLITICS OF RITUAL AND REMEMBRANCE
In August 1959 Crown Prince Sisavang Vatthana became regent, and in the political turbulence of the time "many Laotians associated the decline in health of their sovereign with the gradual disintegration of the kingdom" (Fall 1969:128-9).
King Sisavang Vatthana was forced to abdicate on 1 December 1975, a day before the declaration of the LPDR, and he and former RLG prime minister, Prince Souvanna Phouma, were appointed advisers to the new President Souphanouvong.
A final further "fact" from this storyteller was that Sisavang Vatthana had never placed a roof over the statue of his father outside Vat Simuang, and this also showed that he was not a true child of the old king.

Soulivong Savang, now 37, was 12 when communists overran his landlocked Southeast Asian nation, abolished its 600-year-old monarchy and deposed his grandfather, King Savang Vatthana.
In l981, when he was 18, Prince Savang fled his homeland by swimming across the Mekong River to Thailand after learning that the communists intended to send him to the then Soviet Union for his “education,” he told the Washington Times.
And in December, the communist Pathet Lao (which means “Lao People,” in characteristic communist populist labeling) took over the government in the administrative capital of Vientiane, abolished the royal family in Luang Prabang and took over the country.
