The True History of the RFC Triangle

It is always with amused but slightly sour displeasure that I read of the 'dominant narrative' of the founding of the city-state that sits at the tip of the Kra Peninsula. It is dominant only because it serves certain entrenched purposes for a certain elite population, and not because it is the solid historical bedrock that it is touted to be.

Here then, I shall provide links which the uninformed can access so as to enhance their range of historical perspectives. Let me take you to a gateway between two oceans, and I shall introduce you to three men of Britain: R, F and C.

Here is the history of R: [1] [2] [3] [4]

Here is the history of F: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]

Here is the history of C: [1] [2] [3] [4]

Examine the sources, O reader. And try, if you will, to answer the question: Who is the founder of that which is founded? Or does the task confound?
