The Kingdom of Luang Phrabang was formed in 1707 as a result of the split of the Kingdom of Lan Xang. Monarchy was so weak that it was forced to pay tribute to various times to the Siamese, Burmese and Vietnamese. After a particularly destructive attack by the Black Flag Army in 1887, the kingdom of Luang Phrabang chose to accept French protection.
