History[ edit ] The earliest identifiably Thai kingdom was founded in Sukhothai in , reaching its zenith under King Ramkhamhaeng in the 14th century before falling under the control of the kingdom of Ayutthaya , which ruled most of present-day Thailand and much of today's Laos and Cambodia as well, eventually also absorbing the northern kingdom of Lanna.

Normalized to [0—] byte H: Normalized to [0—] hundred In the traditional color wheel used by painters, violet and purple are both placed between red and blue. Purple occupies the space closer to red, between crimson and violet. There is no such thing as the "wavelength of purple light"; it only exists as a combination. Monochromatic violet light cannot be produced by the red-green-blue RGB color system , the method used to create colors on a television screen or computer display. In fact, the only monochromatic colors of light that can be produced by this color system are the red, green, and blue that define it. However, the system is capable of approximating it due to the fact that the L-cone red cone in the eye is uniquely sensitive to two different discontinuous regions in the visible spectrum — its primary region being the long wavelength light of the yellow-red region of the spectrum, and a secondary smaller region overlapping with the S-cone blue cone in the shortest wavelength, violet part.
