NOTE: This is the Q+A posted in Asiafinest.com/forum which PreahVihear answered to noyume regarding to the question: “So is Nhonh Yia Abhaiwongse a direct descendant of the Angkorian kings and then married into the Bunnag family?”
NO!!! You must understand that the last name Abhaiwongse is of the treacherous Khmer traitors who chose to serve the interests of the Kings of Siam. These Khmer traitors were happy to detach a large chunk of Khmer territory to Siam. And NO they are not of the Angkorean kings, but of the commoner orgin.
